Navy Kenzo tell Apple Music what to expect from their new album

Aika: They should expect very nice melodies, a lot of truth - not a lot, but some of the truth in real life that would really connect to them too as humans, because we’ve been through all that, so once we write about it, sing about it, we just tell them “You know what, we know it, we’ve been there.”

Nahreel: We are one of those artists that are left to talk about deep love… Because now everybody is talking about money and problems, so we’re trying to feed people that there is love, we should love each other.


Navy Kenzo tell Apple Music the meaning of their album title, ‘Most People Want This’

Nahreel: It’s a very special project and through our experience, we are able to tell our story through this project. Most people want this!

Aika: Also most people want love, money, fame a little bit, a good lifestyle… That’s what most people want, and that’s what we’re speaking about. Most people want this, and probably we have most of the things but it’s not about us, it’s about what people love. That’s what is inside the album. People might misunderstand that it’s just about us, there are a few things about us as people also that we relate to, but overall what do you like? What do you love? That’s what we speak about.


Navy Kenzo tell Apple Music about Recording Separately

Aika: I learned so many things, and I learned how to do many things by myself. To be honest, I’ve recorded the whole album myself, I even had to learn production -

Nahreel: - because I was putting a lot of pressure on her during recording sessions, and I told her how to operate the apps, the Logic, the stuff so she could have time alone.

Aika: Time alone really helped so much.

Nahreel: Very true… we have our weird way of recording, you know. We are not together! Imagine [we’re in] the one house, but we are recording at different times.
