"At 18, Nilüfer Yanya - who is of Turkish-Irish-Bajan heritage - uploaded a few demos to Soundcloud. Though she’s preternaturally shy, her music - which uniquely blends elements of soul and jazz into intimate pop songs with electronic flourishes and a newly expressed grungy guitar sound - isn’t. She signed with independent New York label ATO following three EPs on esteemed London indie label Blue Flowers and earned a place on the BBC Sound Of 2018 longlist. She also supported the likes of The xx, Interpol, Broken Social Scene and Mitski on tour. ‘Miss Universe’ is recorded in the Cornwall studio. ‘Angels’, with its muted, harmonic riffs, channels ideas “of paranoid thoughts and anxiety,” a theme that runs through the album, not least in its conceptual spoken word interludes which emanate from a fictional health management company WWAY HEALTH TM."
