Following up to her EPs “Small Crimes” in 2016 and “Plant Feed” earlier this year, the 22-year-old singer, songwriter, and guitarist recently shared a new single, “Baby Luv”. As often with the artist, the track, which is mainly based on a single guitar line (with a sort of climax at the end with some drums and synthesizers), is simple, raw and irresistible. Some sentences keep on being repeated the song – “Do you like pain?”, “Call Me Sometime”, and “Again” – creating a feeling of obsession while contributing to the catchiness of the track.
Speaking to The FADER about the video for ‘Baby Luv’, Nilüfer Yanya said:
As we mentioned it in the past, but it’s never enough to repeat it, Nilüfer Yanya also runs the charitable organisation Artists In Transit which assists displaced people entering Europe through arts. She’s helped on this project by her sister Molly Daniel who also co-directs all of Nilüfer’s DIY videos with her boyfriend Patrick Chamberlain.
