[INDIE] Artist Spotlight: Petite Noir

petite-noir

Yannick Ilunga [alias: Petite Noir] has dubbed his sound ‘Noir Wave’. Sweeping vocals on top of tribal rhythms and modernized electronics tied to restless lyricism makes for some very mixed emotions. Since 2012, he’s been turning heads with his apprehensive new-wave meets African aesthetic. So much so that he caught the ear of Yasiin Bey [alias: Mos Def].

 

He just released The King Of Anxiety and it is a testament to the sentiment.
