LA-based harpist/multi-instrumentalist and composer Nailah Hunter has shared “Strange Delights,” as the second from her forthcoming debut album, Lovegaze.

“Strange Delights” comes accompanied by a conceptual video directed by Haoyan Of America.

According to Nailah Hunter: “"Strange Delights" started as an improv over a modular synth loop that my partner made. At the time, we were burning a bunch of incense in a dark room, which served as inspiration for the wandering vocal melody. Once I worked on it with producer Cicely Goulder, "Strange Delights" took on a more golden quality that reminds me of a hazy and intoxicated feast in a peculiar, yet familiar wood."

Regarding the video, director Haoyan Of America shares: “The idea for "Strange Delights" was developed through conversations with Nailah and inspired by her interest in crocodilian ‘tapetum lucidum’ (Latin for “shining layer”), a biologic reflector system common in the eyes of vertebrates that give them enhanced night vision. The visual arc takes cues from the song's musical progression and highlights contrasting evolutionary ecologies.”

Lovegaze is set for release on 12 January 2024 via Fat Possum Records and is available to pre-order now.
