Boomkat Product Review:
Precious, slanted pop moves from London’s Nabilah Iqbal a.k.a. Throwing Shade, who debuted on Kassem Mosse’s Ominira in 2013 and was also the voice behind SOPHIE’s brilliant Lemonade and L.O.V.E. cuts, beside releasing on No Pain In Pop and the Kelly Twins’ Happy Skull.
“Leading track “hashtag IRL” is a nod to what she calls the ironic “anti-social reality of social media,” full of digital glitter and contemporary colloquialisms but pervaded by an uncanny emptiness too. The “repetitive, robotic and melancholy vocals” to her "symbolize the relentlessness with which the internet now dictates our lives…our thoughts are watered down to a common denominator of hashtags, selfies and internet-speak acronyms.”
While “hashtag IRL" exemplifies her voice, tapped by SOPHIE for breakout track “Lemonade” and most recent single “L.O.V.E.,” the rest of the EP focuses squarely on her multifaceted production skills, lightfootedly gliding on “Marble Air,” nodding to ‘80s cinema on “Ecco Echo,” compelling idle feet to dance on “Fear of Silence” and slipping through the haze of half-sleep on “Underneath My Eyelids.”
