Once Scandinavian, always Scandinavian right? At least we’d like to think so not least when it comes to Swedish-Iranian singer and songwriter Ayelle, who seems to travel the globe about as much as she travels through the mysterious world of experimental music.
Ayelle grew up in Sweden and Spain, to later pursue music in London, and is currently based in New York. Within three years she’s released about 35 singles and features in many more (though we still anticipate a debut album). Ayelle has collaborated with artists and producers from all over the globe, such as Nakala, Calper, Sonn, Cezaire, Naji, Alex Lustig and Crayon. All of whom could be described as progressive in sound. And perhaps that summarizes Ayelle’s experimental musical journey, progressive. In a longer description – soulful alternative electronic R&B. But let’s not kill her vibe by labelling her sound any further. But just let her continue the creative pursuit so that we can continue to sit back, relax and enjoy her pure talent.
Her latest released single came out just days before New Year’s Eve. Undoubtedly her most radio-friendly song so far, yet it maintains her originality with a message much needed for today’s way of life. Namely – it’s okay not to be okay.
And while you’re at it, check out her artsy music video “Mind and Body”! Is it partial to say that it’s to die for?
