Throwing Shade – House Of Silk EP
Many musicians speak of their versatility, but few can boast an MPhil from Cambridge specialising in African history, work in human rights law (predominately in South Africa) and enviable sonic CVs among their caches. Yet such is the extraordinary makeup of London-based Throwing Shade, aka Nabihah Iqbal, a rising producer and NTS Radio host who continues her patchwork of peripheral pop over five new tunes on the House of Silk EP.
In her own words: “Hashtag IRL is an ode to today. It is a reflection of the internet frenzy which has taken over our lives, and which has imprisoned us in a virtual reality, where we each justify our existence through the approval of others. How many likes? How many followers? Never enough, so it seems.”
