New MusicThings We Froth

Now I’m going to preface this piece with the fact I’m going to mention Of Monsters and Men in this piece; but please, pleeeease don’t freak out. Okay. Great. Here we go. This kinnnnnnda a little bit sounds like an Of Monsters and Men track, but in a way that reminds me of a version of that band that isn’t truly terrible. This is Nilufer Yanya, a London based solo artist, who is bringing a nice mix of pop and folk elements together for her new cut, ‘The Florist’.

Here’s a few reasons why you should ignore my aforementioned comparison:

  1. The insane opening guitar line that is reminiscent of a King Krule piece.
  2. The way it slowly builds from the poetic and emotive jazz verses to the super catchy pop-folk chorus. Before you can turn around and say, ‘I’m not into this’, it’s way too late – you’ve been caught. A testament to really strong songwriting.
  3. It retains it’s raw and unique soundscape the whole way through.

Anyway, this video involves gabber culture, and that’s always fun. Go watch/listen.
