Nilüfer Yanya has launched a music video for “H34T RISES”—a newly remixed model of her Miss Universe monitor “Warmth Rises.” The visible was shot by Yanya’s sister Molly Daniel of their father’s hometown of Istanbul. Watch Yanya trip a bike round a dystopian cityscape overgrown with foliage under.
Nilufer Yanya stated in a press release:
The unique music “Warmth Rises” got here collectively over a 12 months or so, perhaps.
I felt actually fortunate I used to be in a position to work with [the Invisibles’] Dave
Okumu on this, there was quite a bit to be taught simply being within the room with
him. I had the tough demo and beat on my cellphone for perhaps a 12 months, however
it wasn’t till the lyrics had been absolutely realized that that it actually
took form as a music for me. The unique monitor works completely within the
album however after I determined to re-release it as a single, I believed a couple of
modifications to the combo and construction may assist it bounce out extra and
that’s the place “H34T RISES” got here from.
Molly Daniel added:
Me and Nilufer hadn’t thought-about taking pictures in Istanbul, however as soon as the
thought had entered our head we needed to keep it up. I felt like
Istanbul would actually match the idea and it was very nice to be
in a position to work with a feminine led and Turkish crew. I keep in mind discovering
out my mum was pregnant with Nilufer after we lived in Istanbul, so
returning to work there collectively as adults actually felt like we had
come full circle.
