If a lighthouse were powered alone by sheer talent, Mereba and her new AZEB project would make things bright. The seven-track project she defined as a “sonic-time capsule” marks her first release since 2019’s The Jungle Is the Only Way Out.
A winsome earworm like “My Moon” could have been shopped to a traditional pop vocalist for adult contemporary radio impact. Mereba’s sauntering tone sports this graceful ditty absorbed in moony lyrics about finding completeness in a love interest.
With the fight against racism and police brutality still in progress, “News Come,” particularly its reprising outro, is a faultless anthem to chant during future marches.
What makes the release of AZEB more remarkable is it arrived on the birth of Mereba’s newborn son. She revealed the announcement in an ear-watering Instagram post.
