OUT

Stepping out into the open and starting off with a bang

There’s something inherently special about an artist’s first single. Excited trepidation turns into creative solace as their baby is shared with the world. Yazija‘s, Out follows this exact journey. The single went straight from a first-listen to on our ‘fantasy’ playlist, as the anthem of self-expression and radical vulnerability is a must-have musical manifestation of all the above.

A hypnotic melody, with an RnB flare, mixed with siren-like vocals, it’s easy to have this one on repeat. Hitting every mark, a guitar solo swoops in and we are returned to our 90’s faves without the obvious ‘flash-back’ rendition. Modern, inventive and vulnerable this single has a personable aura, as though it has been made exclusively for whoever needs to listen. A level of connectivity that is only accessible to artists who make honest music.

 

Alongside the single, Yazija‘s has also released a stunning video inspired and mentored by exemplary filmmaker Isaac Julien ,which encapsulates the freedom felt through the act of creation. We already know we have a gem on our hands, so stay tuned as we predict there’s going to be MUCH more to come…
