Anyone who has seen a Sevdaliza show before will tell you it’s one of the most unique live concerts you’ll ever experience. One of our friends Jackie Jacoby named Sevdaliza’s show at the Echoplex last June her favorite of 2017:
Sevdaliza was by far my favorite discovery of 2017. A former member of the Iranian Women’s National basketball team turned feminist icon, she tweets things like, “till death do us art.” Her Los Angeles show (one of only two in the US) topped my list as the best of the year, not just for her haunting vibrato, but for her ability to make existentialism sexy again: “I am flesh, bones / I am skin, soul / I am human / Nothing more than human.”
You get the sense that she’s the smartest person in the room, a feline stalking her own audience. A standout for me (with a crazy good music video to match!) was “That Other Girl,” a track with a guttural drop at 1:43. Sevdaliza has HUGE secret plans for 2018, and I’m beyond excited to see what she does with these collaborators.
Her music videos are just as mindblowing, give her most recent one “Hear My Pain Heal” at the bottom of this page a watch. She released her debut album ISON last year to critical acclaim and is one of our Can’t Miss Concerts this month.
