Londoner Neo Soul singer Greentea Peng releases new single “Spells”

Greentea Peng is the stage name of British soul singer and songwriter Aria Wells. Today, on her birthday, the South London-based artist rounds off the year with the release of her new single “Spells”, a song with a jazz-influenced beat, framed by honey-sweet vocals.

In Well’s music, which she describes as “Psychedelic Soul”, the 26-year-old processes influences from Neo Soul, HipHop, R&B, Reggae and Dub. She focuses on a warm, playful lo-fi sound and personal, often spiritual themes.

The artist was born in London; she then moved with her family to Hastings in the South of England, where she started making music as a child. Her favourite musicians are among others Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Miss Dynamite and Lily Allen – influences that you can definitely hear in her music. Her first EP “Sensi” was released in 2018. Greentea Peng is currently working on her debut album, which will be released in 2021.

WEST COAST wishes Aria a happy birthday and much success with the new single.

The release is accompanied by a music video, shot in South London, directed by Machine Operated. Watch the new video here: YOUTUBE
