We like to bring to you some rare talent whom we believe have the ability to excel in their genre. This week’s Artist Spotlight goes to King Avriel. She just released the second offering from Avriel’s upcoming album, which is titled: thesis. Read up on some wise words from King Avriel below:
The idea for the song came to me during a prisoner’s dilemma simulation in one of my classes. It reminded me of how, when I was younger, I tended to look out for others at my own expense in those kinds of situations. On surface level, it’s about me taking the blame for an imaginary crime I committed with a partner. However, it is ultimately a metaphor for a more personal lived experience, how I covered up my uncertainty with a false sense of righteousness when making a tough decision, and the faith I drew on to help me find solace.
