Watch Lafawndahs Music Video For ‘Tan’

Directed by Lafawndah and Nick Weiss

In the current electronic music landscape, Lawafandahs vocal style is a breath of fresh air amidst a myriad of familiar sounding female vocalists. It’s distinctive and seems scandinavian accented on first impression. But after a closer listen, it has a pan-cultural sound that has derived from a globalised planet. At this present moment in time, it feels like it could have come from anywhere. Unsurprising given that she grew up in Paris, has English, Iranian and Egyptian heritage, lives in New York and has spent time recording in Guadalope. Her excellent debut EP (available for free download here) pricked up ears and received glowing international reviews. Now signed to Warp, she has shared the title track from her forthcoming EP Tan in the music video she co-directed with Nick Weiss.
