This record features recent singles & remixes from the up-and-coming songstress.

Growing up in West London, 22-year-old Nilüfer Yanya was immersed in music by her artist parents, who have Turkish, Irish and Bajan heritage. She grew up listening to Nina Simone, Amy Winehouse and Pixies and, unusually, you can hear traces of all three in her guitar-driven soul. Rejected twice from a popular music degree she sought her own path, rising from the capital’s open mic nights to BBC Music’'s Introducing Sound of 2018 stage. "Though her instrumentation is sparse - usually just guitar, saxophone, and drums - and her voice is mellow, Yanya’s hooks are always rife with dizzying romantic insight...Nilüfer Yanya cements her status as one of the most promising new artists of the year” - Pitchfork, “Nobody does steely, wounded restraint right now quite like this south-London guitarist” - The Guardian
