LNDFK Releases Debut Album “Kuni” on Bastard Jazz Recordings

LNDFK (aka Linda Feki) presents her ground-breaking debut album, “Kuni,” on Brooklyn-based Bastard Jazz Recordings. Undeniably on the rise after her 2019 breakout performance at Primavera Sound, LNDFK has already caught the attention of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Clash Magazine, Noisey, and Brooklyn Vegan (among many others) while being championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Tom Ravenscroft, and Jamz Supernova & landing spots on tastemaker playlists like Spotify’s “Pollen” and “Fresh Finds.”
 
“Kuni” is a spellbinding exploration of dichotomies: Love & Death (Eros & Thanatos), Flower & Fire, Delicacy & Violence, Poetry & Realism, Purification & Destruction. These opposites are reified in the 10-track LPs multifarious and multifaceted sounds, elegantly meandering through a variety of styles and genres, spearheaded by Linda and features the production wizardry of Darrio Bassolino who co-wrote the album.

LNDFK Releases “Ku,” The Third Single From Her Forthcoming Album

Italian-Tunisian wunderkind LNDFK (Linda Feki) returns with another single, ahead of her debut album release in February. “Ku” is a sonic journey through jazz, future soul, and experimental electronic sounds, bridging the gap between Hiatus Kaiyote-esque songwriting, Dilla’s rhythmic syncopation, and Thundercat’s instrumental prowess (LNDFK has shared a stage Brainfeeder labelmate Kamasi Washington). Inspired by the graphic novel and film, “Sin City,” and its female assassin protagonist Miho, “Ku” is a musical interpretation of Miho’s story, incorporating both her beauty – the first half of the song – and murderous tendencies – the second half – to create a stunning juxtaposition, culminating in an ambient finale that suggests the character’s vulnerability and inner peace.

LNDFK Releases New Single “How Do We Know We’re Alive” feat. Pink Siifu

Following the success of June’s “Don’t Know I’m Dead Or Not (feat. Chester Watson)” – with press from the likes of Clash, Brooklyn Vegan, Rolling Stone Italy, and radio support from BBC Radio 6 (Artist Spotlight) and Worldwide FM – the Italian-Tunisian wunderkind LNDFK returns to Bastard Jazz with a new single, “How Do We Know We’re Alive (feat. Pink Siifu).” 

Further honing her signature jazz-inflected, ethereal future soul sound, LNDFK’s stacked harmonies float above an arpeggiated synth line and glitchy percussion, before she whispers the song’s first verse. The beat builds to skittering hi-hats and a complex, Thundercat-esque (LNDFK has shared the stage with fellow Brainfeeder artist Kamasi Washington), bass line for the second verse, before LA alt-rap king Pink Siifu takes the helm, delivering fittingly abstract bars, replete with phonetically-dense wordplay.

“a continuation of the journey introduced on that first single, leaning further into the realms of Brainfeeder-esque jazz and Fielded-like neo-soul along with its ambient textures and enigmatic closing verse from Siifu.” – FLOOD

LNDFK – “Don’t Know I’m Dead Or Not” ft. Chester Watson

LNDFK (pronounced L.N.D.F.K.) is the moniker of Linda Feki, producer and songwriter, born in Sousse, Tunisia, and raised in Naples, Italy. After touring Europe in 2019, sharing the stage with the likes of Kamasi Washington and Mndsgn, and a performance at Primavera Sound which won over fans and critic, she’s set for 2021 to be a breakout year.  For the album, her homeland and her traditions have helped to nourish her desire to rediscover and engage her roots through art and music. Her music uniquely blends jazz, neo-soul, electronic and hip-hop influences. After releasing a number of critically acclaimed singles with tastemaker radio support (Gilles Peterson & Tom Ravenscroft (BBC), NTS, Worldwide FM), she’s gearing up to drop her debut album in the fall on Brooklyn’s Bastard Jazz Recordings.
 
The first single from the album, “Don’t Know I’m Dead Or Not” features Miami rapper Chester Watson, one of the brightest emerging stars in the alternative hip-hop scene. Chester’s smooth late night flow amplifies the dark tones of the track and compliments LNDFK’s soft yet powerful voice. The track (and forthcoming album) is co-produced with Dario Bass and thematically is deeply symbolic, being centered around the theme of the mental disorder depersonalization (a mental dissociative disorder in which the perception of oneself and surrounding environment feels detached).
 
The new song, “Don’t Know I’m Dead or Not,” plunges into this mental disorder as it unfolds in three movements. In the first part, the song is restless and slurred, with a stream of consciousness that flows on a rugged beat. A disorganized layer of voices spills over into the second part, where the track becomes detached, with a sense of being underwater. In the third movement, the beat is limping & the sound frantic, with a series of electronic glitches that enhance the feeling of absence of familiarity.
