Dena Madani is the daughter of Iranian refugees in Germany, together with producer and her partner in crime L:LUCID, they are known for creating catchy tunes that deliberately float between worlds. She blends traditional Iranian instruments such as ney, santur and kamanche with futuristic synth hooks and a booming bass with Middle Eastern percussion all while Iranian melodies shimmer through her style of singing. Their new single “Sober” is a flawless track with replay value, accompanied with a visually stunning and haunting music video which features intro vocals taken from beloved Persian folk song “Jāne Maryam”.
“Sometimes one can be so driven for their passion that they find themselves feeling completely lost, and at some point, broken. They push on however, glorifying this sort of self-destruction from excess because they justify that it’s for something they love.” —MADANII & L:LUCID.
