Loshh shares stunning debut EP ÍFARADÁ

Words: Dylan Murphy

Born in the Netherlands and raised in Ireland, multi-hyphenate Loshh speaks his truth on an eclectic body of work.

London-based multi-disciplinary artist Loshh has received widespread plaudits for his genre-bending approach and thoughtful poetic quips.

Today, he has released his debut EP ÍFARADÁ‘. The project’s shadowy percussion and mesmeric vocals lay the groundwork for the smokey and immersive world that Loshh crafts across the 23 minute experience.

Dropping via independent label TENNNN, ÍFARADÁ is the product of confronting the burning thoughts he wrestled with over the summer of 2020. 

Locked inside and evading distractions, Loshh tackled his inner thoughts, “I couldn’t run from what was going on in the world nor my mind,” he said.

“My mind was ticking, I had to take it out and speak my thoughts – March and April were especially manic and it was taking a toll on myself, I had to express”. 

Inspired by King Sunny Ade and Fela Kuti, their sonic influence and compelling messaging can be heard throughout the project.

“The EP is about perseverance through everything in today’s world, and the adversity that comes with race, identity and poverty. Migration and displacement can break someone’s spirit if they are not reminded of who they are,” he explained.

“It’s about finding my footing as a black man within a white supremacist world and how to dismantle it without compromising my own identity.”

The full EP arrives following the release of his compelling single ‘Faji and is a huge statement of intent from a high flying new comer.
