BEST NEW SONGS: SEVDALIZA - MEN OF GLASS (FT. ROME FORTUNE)

11/23/15

Rotterdam is a city in the Southern part of the Netherlands, nestled within the Rhine–Meuse–Scheldt river delta. It’s also home to the alluring songstress Sevdaliza, who’s got a knack for crafting breathtaking downtempo electropop songs. Her newest single, “Men of Glass,” finds her sifting through the wreckage of a broken relationship, while Atlana rapper Rome Fortune drops into to add some bravado to the proceedings.

Off her just released Children of Silk EP, “Men of Glass” was produced by Sevadliza and her frequent collaborator Mucky. Orchestral strings swell at the songs beginning of the song and ring through out. Sevadliza are intimate in places, like hushed words spoken at a crowded party, while soaring at other points. Rome Fortune doesn’t showcase the same dexterity, but his verses feel the most memorable. His brashness is nicely contrasted by her heartbreaking verses.

In short, there’s something for everybody here. So listen up already.

Children of Silk is out now in the UK. No word yet on a US release date. Sigh.
