Artist: Ego Ella May
Song: Give A Little
Album: Honey For Wounds

This relaxed neo-soul track from London artist Ego Ella May is luminous in it’s sensitivity and honesty. Of the meaning, she says “Give A Little is about being sick of your own sh*t, and hoping something will give and it will all make sense. It’s about feeling like something’s got to give (to put it simply)… like there needs to be a silver lining because why tf do I keep making silly mistakes in life”.

Artist: Meryem Aboulouafa
Song: Deeply
Album: Meryem

Before you press play- get ready for chills! The vocals and strings on this are absolutely stunning. There’s also a distinct elegance, creativity, and sensitivity to the production and melody. This Moroccan artist says Deeply is “dedicated to those who judge at first sight without taking the time to see the far side of the moon inside each of us. Deeply explores the depths of the intimate and the complexity of our human nature. It seeks to understand and accept this inner duel, this conflict of convictions, contradictory beliefs or feelings.”
