Discovery: Madanii & L:Lucid

Madanii, aka Dena Madani, is a German artist of Iranian heritage. Together with L:Lucid, they create modern R&B with nods to Dena’s heritage, creating something fresh and unique.

New track Sober experiments with layered electronic sounds and vocal effects, a little like Crystal Castles. However, that’s where the similarities end as the arrangement in Sober is unmistakably R&B. Dena’s vocals are enchantingly delicate and full of emotion in an explosive chorus.

Sober is the first single from the pair’s upcoming EP. With a fresh sound like this, I’m sure Madanii & L:Lucid will find themselves a good fan-base across the world. Check out Sober below.
