Since 2018, Ishani’s music drops have each successively rained her raw heartfelt vocals and atmospheric, future thinking beats on us.
“Insomnia” made her a BBC Introducing Artist and in 2019 she performed at Reading and Leeds Festival, where her much lauded single “Nothing’s Changed” stormed the festival crowd. Ishani’s songs take the surfaces, reflections and tribulations of modern life and cast them through the prism of Ishani’s introspective voices. Not shy of big topics, Ishani engages with things our culture still finds difficult to talk about. ‘Don’t Stop The Fight’ tackles violence against women, while ‘Dark Angel’ reflects on the loss of two of her close friends to suicide. It was described by CLASH as “a highly personal plea for mental health awareness.” Ishani has performed at Hungary’s Sziget, one of Europe’s largest music and cultural festivals, and she’s also opened for Icelandic electro group Gus-Gus at Be My Lake Festival. Her work is a synthesis of influences, inspired by her cosmopolitan upbringing and travels through Bangalore, Cornwall and Singapore. She is currently based in London.
