Sevdaliza. One of the most unique, uncompromising and exquisite talents in the world right now. With every next release being a thrill, I would like to highlight in particular the magnificence of her latest offering, the mesmerising "Darkest Hour". The initial, ascetically minimal piano-led production gradually builds up to a haunting, multi-layered synth-pop wonder, bolero style. It already sounds as confident and powerful as some of Sevdaliza's most accomplished works to date such as "Shahmaran", "Human" or "That Other Girl". And that recitation in Farsi in the very last seconds of the song, the cherry on top! A new masterpiece. We are not worthy.
