“Out of Here” by Mekdes is out now via Copenhagen Records
Danish singer Mekdes may be one of the newest neo-soul artists on the scene, but the 19-year-old is quickly making a name for herself. As a child, the young singer found school to be extremely draining — often feeling unable to express herself creatively and limited by the walls created by others. Bus rides to and from school quickly became a sanctuary for Mekdes, who used the time to begin writing music, and we sure are thankful she did. Today, the Ethiopian-born artist returns with “Out Of Here,” the follow-up to her smash debut single “Right Direction” and your newest essential summer bop.
Consistent with Mekdes’ style, the tune is rather autobiographical and about breaking free from societal constraints. The lyrics are honest and direct, but with an upbeat pop beat that’ll have you dancing in the summer sun. Check out “Out Of Here” and keep Mekdes on your radar — she’s going to soar.
