Nilüfer Yanya has appeared on US TV, performing her recent track ‘midnight sun’ on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Wearing a pair of pink angel wings from the video for the same song, you can watch the performance below.
Speaking about the track, she explains: “It’s a song about recognizing what it feels like to be pushed down but wanting to resist. I really like the imagery of ‘midnight sun’ as a lyric as it insinuates a light guiding you through darkness. The wings carry their own symbolism—freedom, lightness, flight, fantasy. If I could pick what people saw & heard it would be seeing the beauty of confrontation and the necessity of rebellion.”
The track is taken from Nilüfer’s recent album ‘PAINLESS’, which was released earlier this month. You can read our chat with her for last month’s magazine here.
