Mysterious melodies, psychy idiosyncrasies, hazy space-pop, nostalgic beats and gently pulsing shoegaze.
Find it. Then let it find you. Built of shimmering vocals, melodic ebbs and flows, skittish drum rolls, synth-heavy beats and wobbly basslines, her 2nd album perfectly balances a pronounced melancholy with a muted radiance. Having first made a quiet name for herself under the Throwing Shade moniker whilst contributing vocals to Sophie’s early releases, 2023 saw the musician and producer curate 2023’s Brighton Festival and host various 6 Music shows across the year, highlighting her versatility and brilliance.
“Iqbal has a rare touch with inky new wave synths and drum machines, emerging as a songwriter of impressive emotional heft” – Pitchfork
We’re eased into ‘Dreamer’ via a brooding, multi-layered, avant-garde composition - the likes of which she returns to in reprise form throughout. Seamlessly, we shift into the title track which explores shoegaze and dreampop terrains. A few tracks in and we go up another gear, diverting us into a world of crisp beats laced with swirling psych sonics. As we progress, she even calls on mid 90’s progressive house patterns, all the while revisiting the minimal, introspective touchpoints that underpin this inescapably impressive work.
