‘PAINLESS’ is the follow-up to Nilüfer Yanya’s renowned 2019 debut album, ‘Miss
Universe’, which fully established her as a singular artist and a distinctive voice that
simply has to be heard.

As the daughter of two visual artists (her Irish-Barbadian mother is a textile designer and her Turkish-born father’s work is exhibited at the British Museum), creativity was always destined for Nilüfer Yanya’s future. Now she enters the next stage of her creative journey - Yanya is running head first into the depths of emotional vulnerability on her sophomore
record, ‘PAINLESS’. The album was recorded between a basement studio in Stoke
Newington and Riverfish Music in Penzance with ‘Miss Universe’ collaborator and producer Wilma Archer, DEEK Recordings founder Bullion, Big Thief producer Andrew
Sarlo and musician Jazzi Bobbi.

Where ‘Miss Universe’ stretched musical boundaries to include a litany of styles from
smooth jazz melodies to radio ready pop, ‘PAINLESS’ takes a more direct sonic
approach. By narrowing down her previously broad palette to a handful of robust ideas
that revolve around melancholy harmonies and looped industrial beats to mimic the
insular focus of the lyrics, Yanya has smoothed out the idiosyncrasies of previous
releases without losing what is essential to her.
