New Music: Areej

Hailing from West London comes Moroccan-Sudanese newcomer Areej. Citing inspiration from the likes of Nina Simone and Etta James, this talent is effortlessly delivering some of the finest UK neo-soul that I have heard of late. On ‘Guided’ she says:

“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.”
