Earlier in the year we reported on ‘Dark Angel’ — a disconcerting and turbulent vision by ISHANI — and described it as “louring and crystalline gemstone…”
Now the Anglo-Indian trip-hop singer-songwriter brings “Stormy Emotions” and, again, we find great depth in the solemn melodrama…
With sounds of the fattest bass synth, repetitive tabla-style, finger-palm rhythms and a snakelike melody that interlaces through the piece like knotted cord of a wedding dhoti, this is a magical affair.
The voice takes us into a land of transformative dreams… part sensual and part portentous.
