Written after years of emotional turbulence, Sevdaliza delivers a second studio album that embarks on a mythical journey of self-healing. Just like an ancient epos, you’re witnessing her quest for love and life. “Evil personified” she sings on opening track “Joanna” guided by dramatic yet delicate strings.
The genre-breaking album is co-produced by long-time collaborator Mucky and evolves from her signature trip-hop to more avant-garde tracks filled with piano riffs. From the R&B-flavored sadness on “Shabrang” to the full-on Farsi ballad “Gole Bi Goldoon”, it’s a very raw look into Sevdaliza’s pain and process.
