About Nabihah Iqbal

Nabihah Iqbal originally performed using the moniker Throwing Shade before reverting to her given name in 2017 to showcase her work as British-Asian female making independent music. Iqbal's debut single, "Mystic Places," was released on Kassem Mosse's Ominira label. She delivered EPs on No Pain in Pop and Happy Skull, and was commissioned to write a piece in response to the 2014 Turner Prize. By 2016, she had signed a deal with Ninja Tune, which released her House of Silk EP. Iqbal set to work on her debut album in 2017, writing, recording, and producing it in her studio space in London and taking things in a different direction by combining electronics with more alternative pop. Preceded by the single "Something More," the album, Weighing of the Heart, was released in December. ~ Rich Wilson
