Nabihah Iqbal (FKA Throwing Shade)
On 21 st June, Ovation welcomes Nabihah Iqbal. The past year has seen the artist, formely known as producer Throwing Shade, take a change of direction that embraces a diverse musical education and her heritage as a British Asian musician.
Her debut LP as Nabihah, ‘Weighing of the Heart’, was released to critical acclaim on Ninja Tune in late 2017. Wandering guitar lines, dreamy synthesizers and lilting, deadpan vocals incur the heady aroma of shoegaze, whilst the boldness in her sound nods to new wave pioneers such as Joy Division and New Order. A multi-instrumentalist at heart, Nabihah has firmly embraced her record’s status as ‘guitar music,’ developing a stunning live show that we are elated to bring to Cambridge Heath.
“Nabihah Iqbal has a rare touch with inky new wave synths and drum machines, emerging as a songwriter of impressive emotional heft.” - Pitchfork
