Shaefri has released an animated lyric video symbolising her acclaimed new single ‘23’. The video is the second in a series of lyric videos created during lockdown by J43 for songs taken from Shaefri’s forthcoming EP Girl.
‘23’ rides bewitching Middle Eastern rhythms while Shaefri’s hypnotic vocals address the hurdles young adults face in today’s society.
Regarding the single Shaefri says, “‘23’ is a recognition of all the challenges facing our generation; we’ve got very little stability, whether it’s where you live, your finances, your mental health, your family, your friends, your career – nothing is certain and it can be really unsettling. Having said that, a big part of ‘23’ is also a celebration of those years and acknowledges that it’s ok not to have everything together, no-one does, and that you don’t need to fulfil anyone else’s expectations of how you should live your life – you’re going to be fine and pursue whatever you want to – it’s your life and your choice, if you stick with it, you’ll get there.”
