On Monday, November 4th @ 8:20AM, DJ Massari airs his recent interview with British singer-songwriter, Nilüfer Yanya. Tune in to hear about Yanya’s concept behind her new album, Miss Universe, newly found success, and her working relationship with creative partner and sister, Molly Daniel.
Nilüfer – who is of Turkish-Irish-Bajan heritage – uploaded a few demos to SoundCloud. Though she’s preternaturally shy, her music – which uniquely blends elements of soul and jazz into intimate pop songs with electronic flourishes and a newly expressed grungy guitar sound – isn’t. And it didn’t take long for it to catch people’s attention. She signed with independent New York label ATO, following three EPs on esteemed london indie label Blue Flowers, and earned a place on the BBC Sound of 2018 longlist. She also supported the likes of The xx, Interpol, Broken Social Scene and Mitski on tour.
