Nilüfer Yanya makes her own rules on 'Small Crimes'

New Londoner comes packaged up with all manner of classic songwriting nous - her debut single is today’s Neu Pick.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Nilüfer Yanya.

Wrapped in the same unquantifiable aura as the greats of songwriting, London newcomer Nilüfer Yanya needs no bells or whistles to establish debut single ‘Small Crimes’ as something special.

Taking an everyday storyteller’s weaving way with words, and floating it out to sea, ‘Small Crimes’ is buoyed by billowing, autumnal swells of sound. It’s a haunting, instantly affecting first work - one that builds surer foundations than most could ever dream of.

Spin ‘Small Crimes’ below - it’s out now via Blue Flowers.
