Amaal Glows In Her New Music Video for 'Coming & Going'

The Somali-Canadian songstress gives us a dreamscape track and music video that doesn't disappoint.

Amaal's latest single is a continuation of her ethereal sound and aesthetic.

The Somali-Canadian singer recently dropped the music video for "Coming & Going" directed by Kat Webber. In the clip, we see her surrounded by doves and bird-like motifs in and around a home surrounded by lush greenery. Amaal soothes us with a reflective track with her dreamy voice, pondering the push and pull of love.

Check it out below.

We can also anticipate an EP from Amaal soon. "I feel like it's about myself. With a lot of my music, the narrative centers around 'people,'" she says in an interview with Earmilk. "Being a refugee, being an immigrant, being raised in an area that was reflective of that [experience]â€ĶI feel like this is just a little more honest [about] my heartbreaks and things I've been through."

Revisit her stunning visual for "Not What I Thought' here.
