Moroccan-Sudanese singer Areej is bound to win many a listener’s heart with her music. The West London-born artist recently released her soulful debut single, “Guided”, and subsequently announced that her 5-track debut EP titled GBOF (Guided By Our Fears) will be released early 2022.
Arriving via Payday Records a little more than fortnight ago, the sax-infused track was paired a beautiful self-directed video.
“Guided” is an intimate and evocative piece about the discovery of those first cracks of light in a moody grey sky. “Despite being in a place of doom and gloom, which is depicted through the opening verse,” Areej notes, “the message and meaning behind my lyrics convey my gratitude for the simple and meaningful things in life.”
