SHARES SPECIAL AUDIOVISUAL ALBUM EXPERIENCE VIA NPR:


One of the most innovative artists in recent years, Iranian-born Dutch artist Sevdaliza released her highly anticipated debut album ISON today via her own independent label, Twisted Elegance. Featuring over an hour's worth of music, the stunning project is a culmination of deep spiritual awakenings and raw life experiences from the past 5 years. It was meticulously curated and entirely written by Sevdaliza and composed, produced, mixed and mastered by Mucky in collaboration with Sevdaliza. This remarkable project showcases her unparalleled ability to challenge social norms and push the artistic boundaries all while staying true to her intricate audiovisual art form and visceral sound.

Sevdaliza creates unapologetic art as an autodidactic singer, songwriter, record producer, director and composer. In her brief time making music, she's formed her own abstract and frequently minimalistic brand of music fused with breakbeat, triphop, grime, punk and experimental elements. She's fully engulfed in every aspect of her art, from art directing to producing all of her music, staying true to her own vision. For this project, she commissioned respected artist Hirad Sab to create and direct the special hour long visual experience of the album, which premiered on NPR earlier today. She also recruited sculptor / artist Sarah Sitkin to create the powerful album artwork that features a handcrafted, hyperrealistic mask of Sevdaliza's own face.

Her art is also highly influenced by her personal history and struggles. Born in Tehran, Iran, she is the daughter of political refugees. At a young age, her home became uninhabitable and she left to make it on her own where she fought for her place in the world. She decided to risk it all and put everything aside in order to make music. While most doubted her, she taught herself every technical skill from scratch and has been pushing up against social norms ever since. She has since then quickly become globally celebrated for her artistry and has alreadyamassed over 14 million total plays on Spotify alone.
