Starting the week with a spoon of sonic honey is one of the precious recommendations from our Dr Fox. And a track like this one will definitely make your day much sweeter.
"Guided" is the debut single from west London-born Moroccan-Sudanese musician Areej. She defines Erykah Badu, Nina Simone and Etta James as musical references, while her sound is a beautiful and enchanting blend of beats, soul and jazz with exotic flavour, due to her rich cultural heritage. Regarding the track he shares:
Despite being in a place of doom and gloom, which is depicted through the opening verse, the message and meaning behind my lyrics convey my gratitude for the simple and meaningful things in life.
The song is the first taster from her upcoming EP, out early next year, so stay tuned.
