Naliah Hunter has shared her new single ‘Strange Delights’.
The track is the second single from her upcoming debut album, ‘Lovegaze’, scheduled for release on January 12th via Fat Possum. The full-length follows on from Naliah’s two EPs, ‘Spells’ and ‘Quietude’, released under her previous label Leaving Records.
On ‘Strange Delights’, the LA-based multi-instrumentalist breathes life into an expansive chorus that’s as richly cinematic as the accompanying music video, where a crocodile swims through the almost wholly submerged wreckage of a post-apocalyptic landscape.
Discussing the atmosphere of the new track, Naliah said:
“‘Strange Delights’ started as an improv over a modular synth loop that my partner made. At the time, we were burning a bunch of incense in a dark room, which served as inspiration for the wandering vocal melody. Once I worked on it with producer Cicely Goulder, ‘Strange Delights’ took on a more golden quality that reminds me of a hazy and intoxicated feast in a peculiar, yet familiar wood.”
Tune in now.
