‘Out of Here’ is a neo-soul inspired summer-bop that easily could be an autobiographic song by the young singer. Growing up, music was her motivation to break down the walls build up around Mekdes by society and the bus trips away from the tiring class room spawned the buzzing creativity and thoughts into songs. ‘Out of Here’ is one of them!

“The song is literally about how I’ve felt since the first day of school. Feeling limited and not being able to express myself creatively but music fills me with joy and gives me the freedom to be exactly who I am,” Mekdes explains.
Born in Ethiopia 19 years ago Mekdes’ voice was innate – as a unique part of her from the very start – and the soul, heart and passion of Mekdes shines through in the music she makes and is a clear reflection of the young artists’ own personality. ‘Out of Here’ is the singers’ first official release on Copenhagen Records and a follow up to her debut single, ‘Right Direction’ – a wonky pop tune that hit the blogosphere and sites like Gems and Secret and Fashionably Early.
