New soul / indie R&B
Nilüfer Yanya doesn’t need much to stand out from the crowd. The 3 EPs’ she has released thus far, excel in their low-key simplicity.
Her sound is somewhere in between r&b and indie, with a wide range of influences: from Amy Winehouse to Pixies. Which has already resulted in a nomination for BBC’s Sound of 2018 and rave reviews from the international press. As FADER so aptly put it in 2017: “Nilüfer Yanya is London’s effortlessly smooth new soul star.”
