Born in Iran and raised in the Netherlands, singer and producer SEVDALIZA made her official debut earlier this year with her self-released EP ‘The Suspended Kid.’ After the April release, she was soon signed to Warp Records, joining artists like Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus, and Hudson Mohawke.


The 27-year-old songstress does not shy away from exploring the complexities of the human condition in her music, particularly aspects of womanhood. Her harmonic and deeply emotive experimental lo-fi sound is raw, hypnotic, and distinctly her own.

Not long after dropping the video for “Sirens of The Caspian”, SEVDALIZA premiered her latest single, “Marilyn Monroe.” The track, which uses the persona of Marilyn Monroe to examine and criticize feminine ideals and expectations, is a spacious and minimalist lullaby. In a post on Facebook, SEVDALIZA writes: “This song is part of a series that represent some kind of womanhood. Marilyn channels her fragility because it makes her powerful. A portrait in shimmering polyrhythms of a single tear floating down the cheek of a disappointed woman.”

The hypnotic repetition is eerily simple, but the direct and emotional lyrics are what ultimately engross the listener. The track finishes in a whisper, with SEVDALIZA realizing, “I was nothing more than a trophy.”
