Nilufer Yanya is teasing her upcoming EP with new single ‘Crash’.
It’s a cut from three-track effort ‘Feeling Lucky?’, alongside ‘Same Damn Luck’ and ‘Day 7.5093’, due for release on 11th December.
“It feels difficult to try and explain a song that doesn’t want to be explained,” she says of ‘Crash’. “My favourite thing about it is how there’s the twist at the end where the vibe changes and it’s almost like a version 2. I’ve been a fan of Nick [Hakim] for ages so it was really great to be able to work with him on ‘Crash’; his production definitely helped it come alive!”
The video meanwhile, was directed by Yanya’s sister Molly Daniel, inspired by aerophobia. “Last year, doing a lot of touring I found myself becoming more and more anxious each time I boarded a plane , something which was new for me as I’ve never had a fear of flying. With each flight we took it felt like the turbulence was getting worse and I was convinced my luck was due to run out. I didn’t write ‘Crash’ about being on an aeroplane but I really like it visually as an embodiment of the song.”
