MADANII & LLUCID

Creating catchy tunes deliberately floating between worlds... Who decides what’s ‘normal’? And what if you’ll never fit into that said ‘norm’ no matter how hard you try? That feeling of otherness is one all too familiar to Dena Madani who was born the daughter of Iranian refugees in Germany. Her thoughtful lyrics explore this, describing self doubt hiding below the surface (HOLES), or razors cutting away the dark and unwanted hair on arms and eyebrows so as to not stand out amongst her peers (MVNIA). Together with producer and partner-in-crime L:LUCID, she blends traditional Iranian instruments like ney, santur and kamanche with futuristic synth hooks and a booming bass with Middle Eastern percussion all while Iranian melodies shimmer through her style of singing. This display of ambiguity in times when a prevalent fear in societies of the ‘unknown other’ is undoubtedly on the rise serves almost as a deliberate provocation. Instead of deferring to simple black and white thinking, MADANII & L:LUCID are embracing the paradox and reclaiming their otherness. Mystical or urban, pop or underground, sex club or vernissage, dramatic or exuberant – MADANII & L:LUCID are all of these things at the same time, refusing any form of pigeonholing.
