Ottawa-based artist Akeem Oh just released an ethereal soft sound and dreamy indie-pop folk piece called “School Girl” which is written about a close friend.
“There is beauty in one’s vulnerable moments, and within simplicity there can still be complexity.” he explains. “The subject of the song faces obstacles along the way, trying to stay afloat. She doesn’t see how special she is quite yet, but everyone around her sees her as the person she wishes to be, and the beauty she holds. ‘When it’s not enough, she magnifies’ – when something’s not good enough, she works hard to make them greater.” Enjoy below:
