Areej Reveals Second Single “Bloodshed” from Upcoming EP


“Blood don’t shed from the leaves, it just sheds from the feeling…”

– quote from “Bloodshed”

Areej, a United Kingdom newcomer, reveals a taste of her upcoming debut EP with the track “Bloodshed.” The song is a blend of raw soul and jazz with Areej’s full-bodied sound that shifts her mood.

In “Bloodshed,” Areej takes listeners through a journey of pain with a hoarse voice, heavy heart on a warn sax riff and an intoxicating hook. 

Nina Simone, Erykah Badu, and Etta James are legendary references that have been Areej’s most significant musical influences. Her unique tone and commanding presence interlocks perfectly with her unique brand of storytelling. 

Areej set the stage in the music scene by announcing her debut G.B.O.F (Guided By Our Fears) EP, set to be released early in 2022. She will document her fight for independence in real-time with songs about love, loss, and longing.
