After spending the past two years writing, recording and honing her sound, Vez Maxwell is ready to present her newest project Arji. Hailing from South London, Arji channels the dreamy, soulful and psychedelic sounds of the likes of Frank Ocean, King Krule, Jordan Rakei and Nai Palm. A song filled with vulnerability, ‘Hard To Breathe’ is a touching debut from Arji who explores what anxiety and unease would appear like in the visual world. The record is taken from the forthcoming three-track EP ‘A Human Dissatisfied’.
Talking about the record Arji says, “‘Hard to Breathe’ is a song about anxiety, it’s about looking for answers but not even knowing what question you’re asking, unease. All of the songs that make up the EP are basically conversations with myself, like the thoughts that keep you up at night, the diary entries that make you feel better the next day.”
‘A Human Dissatisfied’ by Arji will be released this month – watch the video premiere for ‘Hard To Breathe’ below.
