Images & Words: Sevdaliza, “Martyr”

Digital Single

The Tehran native continues to pump out brilliant, fascinating tracks that defy categorization and always have something to say. Taut and quivering with tension, her newest single, “Martyr,” has touches of peak Portishead with its pulsing baseline and pounding drums, and is injected with clever Middle Eastern-tinged, stringed counter melodies. Vocally, she’s so expressive, slithering through the beat dramatically and pulling so much emotion out of every word. Truly one of the best making music today.
