Nabihah Iqbal announcd her debut full-length album, which is titled Weighing of the Heart (due Dec 1 on Ninja Tune) it teams post-punk beats and psychedelic synths with vocals that peek through layers of blissed-out reverb. In a statement, Iqbal notes that “the change to my real name feels like moving forward,” and she’s right. It’s her most accomplished release to date, focusing on her precise guitar playing and foregrounding her assured vocals. The hypnagogic lead single “Something More” — premiering on The FADER today — is one of the catchiest tracks, with a taut pop structure and lyrics which ponder how easy it is to be dissatisfied with the way our lives are going.
