Nisa Unveils New Single “Breach” | US Tour | LP out 4/26 on Tender Loving Empire

Nisa has sharedBreach today, a brand new cut off her debut album Shapeshifting due out April 26 via Tender Loving Empire Records. Strapped with electronic flourishes and experimental guitar lines, the beat-driven atmospheric new single projects an outer confidence opening with powerfully poised assertions: “Cut the shit and walk right in / A hall of mirrors / No illusions / No forgiveness.” Nisa shares, “Breach” is a rehearsal of a break-up with an inconstant version of myself.”

The new project has been met with immediate acclaim spanning Gorilla vs Bear, Rolling Stone, Bob Boilen Favorites Now, FLOOD, Under The Radar, BrooklynVegan and Northern Transmissions. The solo project of Brooklyn-based Nisa Lumaj, also earned accolades for early singles from The New York Times, Pitchfork and Gorilla vs Bear.

Fittingly opening with a track titled “Ready… Set!,” the new collection is a journey towards self-acceptance, self-actualization and a coherent sense of identity. As a daughter of Albanian immigrants, Nisa grew up listening to traditional folk music. As a young person living in New York City and studying in London, she was introduced to the world of English-speaking pop music and enamored by artists like Björk, Peter Gabriel and PJ Harvey. Shapeshifting is a reflection of this interest in forward-thinking sounds—encircled by disorienting processed electronics, chunky guitars, gauzy vocals and unusual melodic choices.

While her previous output was buoyed by sparse indie rock, Nisa worked closely with frequent collaborator Ronnie DiSimone (aka Torna), who produced, mixed and co-engineered the new collection. Nisa’s transformative debut album Shapeshifting delivers a more lush and dynamic version of Nisa’s unique brand of off-kilter electro-pop and experimental punk, while always keeping her towering vocal prowess front and center.
