LALKA - Dare You To Love Me

Introducing LALKA, the subversive new audio-visual project from a Brisbane-based classically trained musician turned DIY electronic artist. Recently, LALKA has unveiled her debut single called "Dare You To Love Me", alongside an entirely self-directed video featuring and involving women from Brisbane's creative scenes. In the LALKA's own words, the single was inspired by "observations from an outsider; an emotional response to the social and political climate we find ourselves in."

Written the day Donald Trump announced his travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries, the dystopian electro-pop track instantly lures listeners in with its opening stark vocals before evolving into a danceable chorus with hypnotic synth hooks. Crafting potent atmospheres that evoke the music of FKA Twigs and Grimes with the aesthetic of Banks, LALKA is an artist who is not afraid to create lavish sounds with a radical edge.

Watch the video for "Dare You To Love Me" below.

"Dare You To Love Me" is available now on iTunes.

Premiere via Purple Sneakers.
