Wait in the cold Wait in the doorway Camouflage your face from all that's harsh Move through the glass And pixelate it The fractions of your body will disperse In his name...

(in his name) You cry-aye-aye-aye-aye-aye-aye-aye Won't you cry for me just one more time I cry-aye-aye-aye-aye-aye-aye-aye Won't I cry for you just one more... And in the moon Lies your phases Many faces, all in secrecy A crowded hall Of no escaping Push through the bodies, find a place to breathe In his name...

This went even further on tracks like “Ego” and “Nail” where the thick textures of the record were replaced with a single, furious blast from the horn, creating an even more stark and confrontational juxtaposition between Nika and the struggles that she’s documented in these tracks.

But in the end, between this trifecta of brutal elements, the live rendition had the perfect balance of beauty, bravery, and bloodlust.

Angel Deradoorian has been primarily known for her work with Dirty Projectors as well as participating in albums by the Roots, Boots, Brandon Flowers, and Flying Lotus, but her talent was fully exposed when she ventured out on her own with her debut EP Mind Raft.

, her first LP on Mute, puts Nika on a new plane of existence, much more natural and much stronger than she’s ever presented herself to be before.
