Princess Diana of Wales

silent green presents

The London-based Australian musician Laila Sakini steps out from behind the disguise of Princess Diana of Wales. As Princess Diana Of Wales, Sakini finds a contemplative and opaque downstroke. Her otherworldly vocals are translated through webs of reverb into an ephemeral vocal style. The vocals seem to drift effortlessly, like the sound of a person coming to terms with themselves.

Underneath, heavy instrumentation, a low-pitched guitar, soft, clicking percussion, layered vocals and found sounds. In addition, a hyperventilating harmonica on a bass foundation and breakbeats with the intensity of a swelling sound system, with vocals in a high register that are as stretched as they are manipulated. Diana offers many clues, but no easy answers.
