Tems – Avoid Things

Tems –

After a year filled with highlights—including a critically acclaimed debut EP, 2020’s For Broken Ears, and hit collaborations with Wizkid, Justin Bieber (“Essence”) and Drake (“Fountains”)—Nigerian alté R&B singer-songwriter Tems leans into a newfound sense of creative freedom on her sophomore EP.

Through its five tracks, creates ample space for Tems’ distinctive voice to shine as she navigates through themes of finding inner peace and staying true to self. “Orange is a vibe,” she explains. “It is the feeling of sunset and the sweetness of an orange. And when I think of those songs, I am transported to a different place where is warm and sweet.”

“I am someone who doesn’t like unnecessary disputes that lead nowhere, and ‘Avoid Things’ is about my [desire] to provide solutions, but being met with resistance, madness and crazy things.”
