Indie RnB singer-songwriter, Abeni, has been honing in on her musical talent since high school, the place that sets the scene of romantic affection in her standout soul-steeped single, High School Crush.
The sunny grooves laid down by the guitars and basslines create a sun-kissed, organically rich platform for Abeni’s velvety smooth lyrics to harmonise above; sinking into this soundscape is pretty much non-optional. High School Crush exhibits the artist’s passion for classical and jazz while keeping the sonic palette very much in the realms of old school accordant soul.
High School Crush is now available to stream on YouTube.
