Anjali Naik, aka electronic artist Diaspoura, is not one to mince words—in her music or otherwise. She goes off in the visuals for her track ‘Glisten,’ and explains to NYLON what it means to be a real ally. “Liberals on the sidelines do not deserve the satisfaction of even knowing about black, brown, queer, trans, working-class, and femme resilience—they should be earning that by providing financial and emotional support.” She continues, “They can see our tears and our sweat and how we gloss ourselves up and move forward again—it’s free for a follow, and it’s even tracked and sold back to us. This was my realization when I wrote and produced ‘Glisten.’ And for the video, my friends and I—a crew of entirely femme, trans, and non-binary people of color, on- and off-screen—rally up and move on with or without them. Buy a ticket or get left behind.” In case 'Glisten’ leaves you eager to dig into the rest of her catalogue (it will), she has also released her new Traumaporn EP. [via NYLON]
I Am Snow Angel
NYC’s dream-pop artist I Am Snow Angel is welcoming 2019 with the lucid 'I Love You’. Simple, but powerful, 'I Love You’ is an ode to a consuming, unconditional type of love that can’t be shaken by even the harshest of winters. It’s about going to the ends of the earth for someone you love. I Am Snow Angel’s chilling vocals wash over listeners with a frigid stillness. The gentle crescendo of string arrangements and somber synths create a complete aura of meditative devotion. 'I Love You’ is a slow-winding, patient quest into a white forest in the night. Snowflakes fall gently as the moon rises and glows upon two lovers’ glistening eyes as they gaze into each other’s souls. I Am Snow Angel’s chilly, on-the-brink style of expression signifies her cessation of trying to tame an unending love. Speaking about the process behind the creation of the song, I Am Snow Angel tells Earmilk, “I wrote and produced 'I Love You’ in a day or two. It basically arrived in one piece, a fully formed song, and I remember crying as I sang it for the first time. My production elements on this track are minimal — a combination of synth, drone, and string sounds with subtle guitar accents. For me, 'I Love You’ feels like a bittersweet yet satisfying homecoming.” 'I Love You’ is the latest release from I Am Snow Angel’s new concept album, MOTHERSHIP, out January 25, which she self-produced, engineered, and mixed while isolated in a cabin in the wintery Adirondack woods. Perhaps its this same stripped down, DIY style of creating that leads I Am Snow Angel, real name Julie Kathryn, to make touching, ambient music that echoes in one’s heart even after the song finishes.
