MORNING SONG: Seinabo Sey - Younger.
You’d be seriously hard pressed to find anyone who possess both the depth and youthfulness of 23-year-old Gambian-Swedish singer Seinabo Sey.
In her debut single, produced by Magnus Lidehäll, Sey doesn’t shy away from expressing her philosophies on the things that inspire her and motivate her to pursue her dreams with every waking moment. She’s full of wise words. Her infectious statements linger and settle in your consciousness. As the group of young believers accompanying Seinabo Sey through this serene and picturesque setting go about doing the wonderful things that young people do, Sey stays grounded in the deliverance of her message. Whilst it may sound, and look, as though she’s romanticizing youth, right at the very start of the video, through symbolism, Sey acknowledges the fragility of life and the human spirit - a theme that plays out throughout the video.
Supported by the song’s continuous and climaxing beats, Sey’s voice carries a sense of both freedom and urgency. No syllable uttered or lyric sung goes to waste. The advice she dispenses is both instructional and filled with a sense of upliftment that only makes you want to fulfill all the things you once gave up on.
"There’s a way to be yourself, I assure you this
There’s a way to get your dreams without falling asleep.
You might as well get it while you can, babe,
Cause you know you ain’t getting any younger”
