After a slew of singles including ‘Trust’ and ‘Choice’, Ayelle dropped her NOMAD Mixtape last week. It’s a collection of intimate self-reflection fueled by Ayelle’s growth through travelling, relationships, and self-discovery featuring crisp production elevated by her sultry honeycomb vocals. Speaking on the project, she says:
“‘NOMAD’ is a collection of songs written over the past two years whilst I’ve been traveling almost every 2-3 weeks to places like London, New York, Los Angeles, Texas, Valencia, Barcelona, Bali, Cambodia, Vietnam, Stockholm, and Amsterdam to name a few. Throughout my life, I’ve never felt fully rooted anywhere. I grew up in Sweden and Spain, I’m half Iranian, I lived in London for 7 years and my family is spread across the globe. On my dad’s side, my family comes from a nomadic tribe called ‘Qashqai’ and this resonates with me a lot as I can never seem to stay in one place for too long. Every song on this mixtape represents a part of that journey and something I’ve learnt about myself, or something I’m still trying to figure out.”
