Nilüfer Yanya’s latest single, “Like I Say (I runaway),” marks a triumphant return for the artist, accompanied by a captivating music video directed by her sister, Molly Daniel. The track, which introduces her signing to Ninja Tune, serves as her first offering since the acclaimed album “PAINLESS” in 2022.

In “Like I Say (I runaway),” Yanya’s distinctive style shines through with chunky, distorted guitar riffs which add a rawness to her sound. The song builds tension through its verses, leading to an explosive and cathartic chorus that bursts with infectious melodies.

Collaborating once again with Wilma Archer, her creative partner known for his work with artists like Sudan Archives and Celeste, Yanya explores themes of self-discovery and the urgency of time. The lyrics reflect her fearless approach to artistry, embracing authenticity while navigating the complexities of the world around her.
