British musician Aziya’s talent and wisdom are far beyond her years. Having teased the single to fans across her social platforms over the last two months, today, after some time away she returns with ‘atomic’ – a track with new-wave roots which she made earlier last year.
Speaking on the single Aziya states: “‘atomic’ is an exploration of whether love exists in 2023. But for my own sanity, accepting that there is a lesson to be learnt from every interest that enters into my life so enjoy the moment for what it is. The song is written with the hope that everyone deserves that right person and amongst the hookups and being matched by AI and algorithms they are out there. A diary into Gen Z love.”
Since emerging with the alternative indie smarts of searing debut single ‘Slip!’ in 2021, and vibrant, varied first EP ‘We Speak of Tides’ shortly after, the London-born artist Aziya has been cementing herself as a musical triple-threat. Influenced by the multiple talents of childhood hero Prince, she’s an artist with naturally powerful vocals, but also a deft and enviable mastery of her guitar and an increasingly independent grip on production.
Last year also saw Aziya support the likes of Florence & the Machine at the O2 Arena, as well as support tours with Nova Twins and The Vaccines. Heading into her next phase with a second project set for release later this year, she’s already carving out an ambitious space for herself where she can create with complete artistic control.
