You may or may not have heard of BBC Introducing artist Ishani before, but if not, you really should catch up! Since 2018 she has been dropping tune after tune of raw heartfelt vocals, set to atmospheric, glitchy beats, all wrapped up with a bow of catchy melodies. Ishani may have a bright future but her latest track ‘Nothing’s Changed’ takes you back in time, to a moment that she wants to forget...
Mixing Asian samples, drum and bass and her unique brand of electro-pop, and soulful vocals, it is a treat for the senses. 'Nothing’s Changed' is a poetic, introspective piece of songwriting, chronicling mood swings, the dangers of giving someone else power over you, and a bitter sweet love. This is a piece that grows bolder with each beat, crashing into its jungle inspired frenetic conclusion with palpable relish. Ishani and her co-producer Zaflon were clearly having a lot of fun in the studio.
It is a stunningly theatrical piece that echoes FKA twigs and Banks. Yet it is unmistakably an Ishani song as, like all her tracks, there is a strong message here - don’t let your past define you!
You can catch Ishani at the Introducing stages at Reading and Leeds Festivals this summer.
Ishani obtained her degree in TV, Film and Radio at NTU, the top University in Asia, before she moved to London to study Audio Engineering at Alchemea & Point Blank. Her first track ‘Pelican Elephant’ was picked up by MTV India. Ishani has performed at Sziget Festival and she’s also opened for the Icelandic electronic group ‘GusGus’ at Be My Lake Festival. Her second single ‘Don’t Stop the Fight’ was picked up by VH1 and included in the Indian interactive comic book Priya’s Mirror. Ishani is deeply influenced by artists such as Massive Attack, Portishead, Morcheeba and Hooverphonic. She has recently been made a BBC Introducing artist by Bobby Friction.
Instantly recognisable by her distinctive vocals, and with incisive and often challenging lyricism, (‘Don’t Stop The Fight’ for example centres on the horrific social effects of rape), Ishani has already earned her dues as a serious and provocative recording artist. Her single ‘Insomnia’ centred on the anxiety that keeps us awake every night, and ‘Dark Angel’ was inspired by the loss of two of her friends to suicide.. Together they, along with ‘Stormy Emotions’, teased her upcoming EP also titled ‘Stormy Emotions’, co-produced with Zaflon, which is to be released later this year.
Ishani hits the pop landscape as a serious artist committed to making both provocative and widely appealing work. Her themes are culled from the darkness and the light in the world around her, and she weaves her razor sharp observations into pristine and addictive electro-pop.
