Nilüfer Yanya – Small Crimes

“Small Crimes” is London-based newcomer Nilüfer Yanya debut for the Blue Flowers label. Vocally potent and instrumentally interesting (the use of jazz-influenced chords, and the beautiful picked guitar melodies are particularly cool), it’s “Small Crimes” pacing and accomplished hold on emotive dynamics that really stands out. “Small Crimes” is out now.
