Nilüfer Yanya made her television debut last night on Late Show with Stephen Colbert where she performed “In Your Head” off of her breakout record, Miss Universe.
The powerful performance saw Yanya incorporating a delicate blend of soul, R&B, indie, rock, and pop into one amalgamation of unique, dynamic textures. Yanya’s performance was emotive as she belts her way through the fast-paced lyrics, singing lines like, “But down here I’m dark and confused/ Oh, though I cannot tell if I’m paranoid/ Or it’s all in my head,” on top of a standout electric guitar line.
Watch Yanya perform “In Your Head” below.
Catch Nilüfer Yanya at the Horseshoe Tavern on August 3rd.
