“At the time I was writing, I was in a very confusing headspace,” Little Simz told The Guardian of her third studio album. “Everything was in this weird area, and it was all a shade of grey. Being in your mid-twenties feels like a strange place to be. I’m still discovering myself and things are a lot more complex than they were five years ago. Nothing’s straightforward. I’m peeling off layers as I’m getting older, and finding more and more about myself.”  The album opens with a statement of intent in ‘Offence’; an anti-apology for what’s to come.  Simz is figuring out as she goes along, and ‘GREY Area’ is an insight into just that, and it’s intoxicating.  Stream below via SoundCloud.
