New Music: Agi

A hugely promising talent hailing from the UK, Leeds-based pop artist Agi’s style of music occupies a space between Jeremy Zucker, Lauv and Julia Michaels, yet still feels characteristically unique.

As has been the case with so many great bops lately, new single ‘Lonely’ was written during lockdown while Agi was living alone. Although the song highlights the hardship of isolation, it also offers us a sense of freedom and optimism.

“The thought of being alone for more than two or three days used to scare me and made me really uncomfortable. The bizarre experience of being stuck inside taught me to be okay with being by myself. It made me realise even when I’m feeling lonely, I’m never truly alone. Especially in lockdown, in a weird way, I felt more connected to people by the fact we all felt lonely.”
