Petite Noir, New Blood From Cape Town
Discover him in his video for “Pressure”
Barely 22 years old, Congolese musician Yannick Illuga - the brain behind the project Petite Noir - comes to us from South Africa, invoking the ghosts of post-punk from a contemporary perspective, marked by electronic seasoning and very soulful sounding vocals. The artist, who resides in Cape Town, has assured us that before the end of this year he will surprise us again with new songs. For the moment, we’ll have to settle for the video to “ Pressure”, disturbingly filmed in black and white. Directed by Ben Johnson.
