Meet MTV Iggy's Artist of the Week: Leila Adu!

We are absolutely thrilled for Leila!


Shout out to Leila, whom the MTV site calls “New Zealand’s jazzy, delightfully erratic alt-pop virtuoso.”

Further, they write:

Typically, her arrangements are repetitive and minimal, yet far from simple. The title track off her new album Ode to the Unknown Factory Worker consists of two repeated, dissonant doomsday chords, while her vocals span the map, bending  into the impossible scales that lesser-trained musicians would try to avoid.

She’ll be featured on the MTV Iggy homepage all week, and a Q&A will follow shortly.

A well-deserved honor, indeed!
