sevdaliza – dormant
On ‘Shabrang’, the second studio album from Iranian-Dutch artist Sevdaliza, you can’t help but be swept away by the transcendent, entirely immersive sonics and emotive songwriting. Over the years, Sevdaliza and Mucky have formed an undeniably partnership, it’s one that is ever stronger and brighter on ‘Shabrang’, which boasts their best work to date in tracks like ‘Lamp Lady’ (which the singer performanced earlier this week), ‘Oh My God’, ‘Darkest Hour’ and ‘Human Nature’.
For her COLORS ENCORE performance, Sevdaliza treats us to yet another gem from ‘Shabrang’, the breathtaking experience that is ‘DORMANT’. Backed by a frosty, electronic trip-hop beat, the song is elevated by the singer’s delicately delivered falsetto-laden vocals as she hopes to reignite a dormant relationship. Dive into the mesmerising atmospherics of ‘DORMANT’ up top and don’t forget to put ‘Shabrang’ on rotation too.
