Rotterdam-based singer Sevdaliza made this utterly beautiful new track “Marilyn Monroe” with her go-to producer Mucky. We’ve never heard the Iranian-born artist this vulnerable before. The hazy and minimal production reminds us of the likes of FKA twigs and BANKS.
The song deals with the contradiction of fragility and strength: “Marilyn channels her fragility because it makes her strong,” Sevdaliza explains. “When she sings, she breaks and there’s nothing left to hide.”
Sevdaliza recently signed to Warp, so expect big things from her in the future.
