Aisha Badru sets her warm and inviting voice against an array of soft effects: synths, subtle vocal processing, beats that click and clatter quietly. As the dramatic tension builds, all that technology only enhances her songs' sense of intimacy, pulling you closer until she might as well be whispering directly into your ear.” – NPR Music

    Critically acclaimed New York folk-pop singer/songwriter Aisha Badru will release her full-length debut, Pendulum [Nettwerk], on Friday April 27, 2018.

    Pairing minimalistic electronic production and a starkly chilling vocal, the single haunts and hypnotizes as she casts an unbreakable sonic spell. It’s yet another dimension of Pendulum. Additionally, the album includes the fan favorite “Bridges” as well as the powerful protest piece “Mind On Fire”—which has already totaled 10 million cumulative Spotify streams.

    With a dynamic voice and delicate songcraft, Aisha Badru filled a void in both folk and pop with her independent 2015 EP, Vacancy. Its centerpiece “Waiting Around” soundtracked a viral Volkswagen South African campaign, figured prominently in an episode of Stitchers on Freeform, and generated over 11.3 million Spotify streams. Coveted playlists such as Your Favorite Coffeehouse, Morning Acoustic, Indie Acoustic, Feminist Friday, and more have touted her music, while Apple Music included her among Best of the Week.” She’s also garnered praise from the likes of Afropunk, Flaunt, Ones to Watch, and more.
