Aiyana K (@aiyanakmusic) is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Coventry, England. Not too long ago, she released a lovely debut single, titled, “Green Lights.”
Aiyana K – “Green Lights” lyric video
“Green lights flashing in my eyes, telling me to go. Some kind of sign, a kind of signal I seem to ignore. The problems I face, these red lights. Don’t wanna look back and think I could’ve done better. Wish I had been clever. Oh man, I’m better than this.” – lyrics
‘Green Lights’ tells an intriguing tale about a young woman who hasn’t fully realized her potential and the uncertainty that accompanies her unknown future. She tells her companion, “Without you here, I’m about to lose my mind.” She knows where she wants to go in life, but somehow, she finds herself lost in a black hole, all alone. Later, she admits, “Need some guidance, these lights are so blinding. So I close my eyes, don’t realize I’ve given up trying. Lost in all these thoughts, my only cure is your words.”
‘Green Lights’ contains a relatable narrative and pleasing vocals that will resonate well with fans of Jorja Smith and RAYE. The emotive tune possesses saturated drums and bass-laden instrumentation flavored with neo-soul and indie R&B elements. Furthermore, “Green Lights” serves as the opening chapter to Aiyana K’s forthcoming EP, titled, “No Rain, No Flowers.”
“Light up my way don’t let me go astray”
“Through the symbolism of traffic lights turning green, ‘Green Lights’ explores the sensation of feeling unsure of what path to take. The song delves into the fear of not reaching your full potential and the anxiety surrounding the uncertainty of the future. Even as the lights transition to green, the lingering fear of being stuck at a red light persists.” – Aiyana K explained
Aiyana K began her musical journey performing in the Midlands before moving to London to pursue her dreams as an independent artist. Over the past few years, she has encountered her fair share of challenges, facing the difficulties of developing TSW (Topical steroid withdrawal) which significantly knocked her confidence. However, it was during these difficult times that she discovered the profound healing power of music.
Inspired by the courageous authenticity of artists such as RAYE, Aiyana strives to be her most genuine self. Her ultimate aspiration is to build a strong and supportive community where individuals can find solace and understanding through her music.
