The day before her new album is released, Nilufer Yanya plays in the shop. She mixes up pop, RnB, jazz and indie to create a distinct and addictive sound on her highly anticipated debut album, Miss Universe.
Now, Nilufer is ready to release her debut album, Miss Universe. Though she recorded much of it in the same remote Cornwall studio she used to jam in as a much younger person, it is bigger and more ambitious than anything she has done before. ‘Angels’, with its muted, harmonic riffs, channels ideas “of paranoid thoughts and anxiety” - a theme that runs through the album, not least in its conceptual spoken word interludes which emanate from a fictional health management company WWAY HEALTH TM. “You sign up, and you pay a fee,” explains Nilüfer of the automated messages, which are littered through the album and are narrated by the titular Miss Universe. “They sort out all of your dietary requirements, and then they move onto medication, and then maybe you can get a better organ or something… and then suddenly it starts to get a bit weird. You're giving them more of you and to what end?”
In-store Grade C. Come on down.
Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of Miss Universe from us.
