Rising star Nayana Iz returns with her first solo taster of fresh music this year with new single “Breaking Point”, which she shares alongside a beautifully intimate video directed by Liam S. Gleeson.
“Breaking Point” heralds a new chapter in the singer / rapper’s already-distinguished career. A confessional diary entry, the bruised vulnerability serves as both a rebirth and a prelude to this latest era, plaintive keys and jazz inflections paired with wistful vocals and hushed rap verses.
What first began as an ode to her boyfriend manifested into something far more profound; the consciousness of a British-Asian woman reconciling with her past self. The accompanying video provides a snapshot into the 20-year-old Londoner’s world, mostly set against the low-lit night-scapes of the city.
One of the UK’s most distinctive new talents, “Breaking Point” follows on from last year’s debut EP ‘Smoke and Fly‘, a weird and wonderful, amorphous blend of Eastern intonations and caustic bars. 2020 was rounded off with the release of stellar standalone single “Partner In Crime” and a must-see Colours performance, and most recently Nayana featured on the raucus “South!” with Kezia.
