On his debut album You Will Not Die, Nakhane’s past and present collide in a diverse, expressive and cathartic collection. Underpinned by energetic synthesizers, electronic beats and some more glitch-ridden elements, while pianos, guitars and sweeps of strings give an organic edge to the mix. On the buoyant, pulsating Interloper, the hook’s harmonies are evocative of gospel, and By the Gullet combines glassy tones with bold bass licks. Source: www.theskinny.co.uk
“My art, in all mediums, is a space where I influence and exercise power. It’s the only space when I can go ‘this is mine’.”
There’s a clarity of focus here, a sharpness previously not used in Nakhane’s writing. “Clarity first” was the mantra for writing You Will Not Die, compared with the purposeful obfuscation or free association of the work that preceded it.
“I wanted [the writing] to be very clear on this album … and more naked, which is easy for me, because my mother always taught me to be unafraid.” Source: mg.co.za
