Petite Noir Shares New Single 'Shadows'

Stream South African 'noir wave' producer Petite Noir's striking new single "Shadows" from his upcoming The King Of Anxiety EP.


South African ‘noir wave’ producer Petite Noir (aka Yannick Illunga) is getting set to drop The King Of Anxiety EP next week. We've heard the EP's slow-burning "Chess" and now get another taste off the release in "Shadows" — a striking consolidation of roaring bass, thundering snares and post-punk guitar riffs held together by Illunga's hypnotic howl. In related news, Petite Noir recently spoke to Pitchfork about the upcoming release, going to metal shows in Cape Town, working with Yasiin Bey and the huge influence Kanye's 808s & Heartbreaks had on him, “I was like, ‘Wow, here's a black guy just breaking all boundaries.’ I will always respect Kanye. He literally changed my life.” The King Of Anxiety is out January 19 on Domino Records, pre-order it here.
