First off we want to congratulate Sevdaliza for making ISON worth the wait. The Suspended Kid, Sevdaliza’s first EP was just an appetizer compared to this latest drop. Simply put; This. Is. Art. ISON sometimes reminds us of the good days of James Blake and other times it feels like she’s talking to The Weeknd’s House of Balloons. It’s dark, it’s grimy – it’s a beautifully orchestrated sonic experience. The artwork is made by sculptor Sarah Sitkin. In Vice Creators she shares the idea behind it: “The idea is based around Sevdaliza being the mother to herself and her past lives. It carries her vulnerability stoically. Her features distorted, some omitted, some emphasized. A new form is repeated through her 16 children (number of songs) surrounding her.” The Dutch-Iranian artist definitely has a story to tell and these are our favorite tracks: Shahmaran, Marilyn Monroe, Scarlette, Do you Feel Real. Enjoy ISON and let us know what you think.
