Sevdaliza (Teheran) is an autodidactic singer, songwriter, visual artist and composer. Her creations contrast husky vocals with cutting strings and basslines creating an enigmatic mood. Born in Iran and residing in the Netherlands, the 28-year-old has made quite a name of herself. The songstress/producer draws her influences from several textures like skin and glass. Sevdaliza’s melancholic visceral voice floats over beds of mechanical instrumentation, creating dynamics of chaos and order. Her songs have a philosophical questioning character; subjects like gender diversification and perception of emotion are strongly present. Diverse comparisons have been drawn yet it remains a difficulty to specify her in a particular genre. Rhythmic tensions build slowly into chaotic climaxes. Sevdaliza plays with the simulation of identities and fantasies that can hardly be distinguished from reality. Creating a world where everything is possible.
To Sevdaliza, expression also comes forward in designing every detail in sound and imagery. Her music is charged with demanding energy and an enormous amount of dynamics. It portrays a porcelain yet deep fullness. Her creations attracted worldwide attention of international press. In 2015 she self-released her debut EP DzThe Suspended Kid and the follow-up DzChildren of Silkdz. Both EP’s were well received worldwide with the likes of international press and labels. Meanwhile, her music has been synced on the runway and in stores for Armani and DKNY. Sevdaliza attended the Red Bull Music Academy 2015 in Paris. Her latest releases were the internationally successfully single 'Marilyn Monroe', the groundbreaking 3D video for 'That Other Girl that was created with visual artists Pussykrew and the release of 'Men of Glass' featuring Rome Fortune.https://www.facebook.com/SEVDALIZAMUSIChttps://soundcloud.com/sevdaliza/sets/children-of-silk/s-plHp3
