Don’t Waste Nilüfer’s Time

When I hear a song a from an artist that I don’t know very well, as you would expect, Google is my friend. Nilüfer Yanya surprised me as I thought to myself, this bold voice can’t possibly be coming from the petite young woman I see pictured here. She is a 21-year-old London-based singer/songwriter and this second single, “Keep On Calling,” is from her debut three-track EP. Her parents are both artists and she grew up around jazz and classical music, influencing her current sound.

This song takes a close look at how fed up we can get with time-wasting-ass dudes to the point where the thought of their voice makes you want to hit that little decline button (or worse, if you’re me). No one wants to waste effort over a boy. Girl, you are not alone.
