Last year LCV joined pioneering South African artist Nakhane for a special recording session in Dalston, working alongside Ben Christophers (Bat For Lashes). We so excited to hear the songs which have now been released and they’re receiving some well-deserved press attention, especially from DIY Magazine and The Guardian who have tipped Nakhane as an artist to watch! The article includes a link to single Presbyteria, which features choral backing arranged by LCV’s founder Anil Sebastian and sung by LCV. Nakhane’s latest single Interloper also features vocals from LCV – check out the amazing music video below along with the preview article from The Huffington Post - the video has had nearly 100,000 views!
The record is receiving positive praise across the board. Clash Magazine says:
“Let’s flip this review on its head and reach our conclusion first: Nakhane’s new album ‘You Will Not Die’ is extraordinary. It’s an incredibly beautiful document of self-acceptance, a soaring ode to self-worth, a blissful, remarkably assured piece of creativity as wide as South Africa itself.”
