Filipino/African-American artist Jelani Aryeh is known for albums such as Helvitica and Suburban Destinesia. Singles like “Stella Brown”, “Marigold” and “From These Heights” had, by the time of his debut album release, already amassed over 55 million streams
A new single dropped in June 2021, “Overexposed,” a song in which he reflects on his changing lifestyle and experiences as an artist. "This song stemmed from a conversation about how social media never lets you feel like you can be alone with your own thoughts because you're always being updated on things that you don't need to know or care about."
Aryeh was 21 years-old in July 2021 when his debut album I’ve Got Some Living To Do was released. "It’s always been a dream to make a guitar driven record. I think it stems from meeting my ex-girlfriend and her putting me onto bands like Cage The Elephant, The 1975, and Milky Chance," recalls Jelani. "I fell into a rabbit hole of indie rock, psych rock, noise rock, glam, and folk. That’s just what I like listening to now. Brian Eno, Sonic Youth, Wilco, Radiohead, Love, The Beatles. It just consumes me."
A video for his single “Overexposed” directed by Will Noyce debuted in July 2021. "The microclimates (of Marin County) really set the perfect scene for our surrealist vision for Overexposed - one second we were in Point Reyes which totally felt like Iceland or some distant country with its overcast skies, cows and rolling hills, and the next we found ourselves at the top of Mt. Tamalpais which felt like literal heaven - you’re above the clouds and everything the sun touched was gold."
