Returning to your rotation today is Neemz - a Palestinian, multi-faceted artist who's based in Boston, and just dropped off her second single of 2021 -- "Awake".
As mentioned in my article on "Plan A", Neemz is one of the most exceptional creatives in Boston at the moment. Whether she's building up her repertoire within the Fashion Industry as both a model and photographer, or working late into the evening at the studio perfecting her sonics, Neemz is always en route toward self-development, and achieving her greatest purpose in life.
"Awake" is an incredibly bubbly offering that helps the listener elude darkness, and move closer toward an existence that's full of light. While many of us experience sadness, anguish, and hopelessness throughout our days, Neemz is here to remind us that these feelings are only temporary, and never permanent. We all possess the ability to heal from what we've been through, and throughout this offering's three minute runtime, Neemz reinforces this sentiment continuously.
In addition to the lyrical elements of this release, the sonics are of a ridiculously high-caliber as well. Her first three discographical additions showed signs of Neemz's promising capabilities with respect to singing, and on "Awake" she allows this strengthened aspect of her artistry to take the spotlight. Additionally, Bnyx provides some exceptional production on this release, lacing Neemz with a vibrant instrumental that's lined with 80s pop synths. Coming together to create a snowball effect of positivity, Neemz is truly setting herself up for success.
