This young artist from South London, Mariam, has released her first EP Heart to Heart. This is not our first time working with the artist. We first had the opportunity to talk about her debut single ‘Be There for Me’ before the release of her EP
The artist has a very distinct sound that you can’t help but love.
Following the first track, is the first interlude ‘What I Want’. It is such an ethereal track, with a combination of soft vocals and light organs. The interlude slows down the pace for the project.
‘Grow’ has to be my favorite part of the project. Though it is only an interlude, she shows listeners her diversity when she begins to play her acoustic guitar (that she taught herself how to play).
The line “grow with me” could carry so much weight depending on the type of relationship that is being referenced. The interlude is so simple, just a few cords and a few lines but it’s so effortless which makes it so much better.
Everything ends with the track ‘Running’. A soft and slow ballad-like track. It is heavy on the acoustic guitar and sultry vocals, making it the perfect send off.
