“Small Crimes” is the captivating debut track from London-based Nilüfer Yanya. Inspired by the likes of Jeff Buckley, Connan Mockasin and Nina Simone – the track is drenched in a beautiful detachment. A stunning example of less being more, “Small Crimes” is built on a beautiful voice and earnest lyricism.
The track was a response to the theft of her bicycle, an everyday occurrence in London that is captured here so perfectly. To make the mundane sound this great is a real gift. Nilüfer is a very welcome addition to the singer-songwriter landscape.
“Small Crimes” is released via Blue Flower
