Aziya (pronounced: “az – eye – ya”) is a 21-year-old British singer-songwriter and musician. Not too long ago, she released an appealing audiovisual for her “Heaven For Me” single.

“I wanted the video to have that hazy, dreamy, ethereal quality to it. I produced this track referencing a lot of psych-rock bands – from Led Zeppelin to Ebo Taylor. So I definitely wanted it to have a nod to the ‘70s – the prime era of psychedelic music.” – Aziya explained
‘Heaven For Me’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses vibrant instrumentation flavored with alternative-rock and psychedelic-pop elements. Furthermore, “Heaven For Me” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Aziya’s upcoming debut EP, available in summer 2021 via Platoon.
The Thomas James-directed music video takes listeners on a dreamy, kaleidoscopic journey that firmly bolsters the feel of the song.
“‘Heaven For Me’ is a romanticized and fantasized version of a very toxic relationship. It relays the story of someone in love with a person plagued by narcissism and inner demons. I’ve tried to depict the ill fate it brings to the one in love with that person. It’s a fairytale description of a very real scenario that happens in front of us every day.” – Aziya explained
Aziya’s talent and wisdom are far beyond her years. She picked up a guitar at the age of 10 and began writing her own music shortly afterward. After graduating from the BRIT school in 2018, she learned to produce and becoming a force to be reckoned with. Aziya’s musical inspirations include Patti Smith, Tame Impala, and Prince. Earlier this year, she released her ferocious debut single, entitled, “Slip!”

“A lot of the hunger comes from me wanting to change the norm and make it clear to people that hear my music that it’s me writing and playing. I want to be the artist that I didn’t get to see growing up.” – Aziya stated
Aziya has been using her time wisely, posting riff-heavy covers online. To date, she has covered PJ Harvey, (Aussie psych weirdos) Pond, Jimi Hendrix, and Grimes’ OBLIVION. The Canadian singer reposted the cover on her own socials. In addition to Grimes, Aziya’s talents were also recognized by H.E.R., who invited Aziya to perform on her Instagram live series, entitled, “Girls With Guitars.”
“Heaven For Me” single
“My lover is tender, that’s what he wants me to say. But when the dusk turns to night, he lights a different kind of flame. He says come to me, it’s been so long since we embraced. You’re heaven for me, a place of safety from this mess I’ve made. As he wrapped his arms ’round me, I knew things could never be the same.” – lyrics
