SIXTY Listens: Nilüfer Yanya “Thanks 4 Nothing”

With a voice much richer than her 22 years should generally afford, London-based singer Nilüfer Yanya offers a hauntingly beautiful look into post-breakup heartache with her latest track, “Thanks 4 Nothing.” With the instruments stripped bare, Yanya’s voice takes center stage, making her case plain.

SIXTY Listens: Sassy 009 “Pretty Baby”

We’re still feeling the pulse of the New Year’s Eve party, and Sassy 009’s “Pretty Baby” is the kind of low-key, upbeat song that’s up for the task. The newly formed Norwegian threesome has been recently lauded for their unexpected electronic music, and this song is no exception. The...

Sandra Mansour Takes Us to Lebanon

If Erdem and Valentino had a baby, it would be Swiss-born, Lebanon-based designer Sandra Mansour. Her fashion is modern, ethereal–easily paired with the drama of cinema. Which brings us to this.
