‘Method Actor’ is again Nilüfer Yanya at her best! Delivering introspective lyrics and brooding vocals against a thrilling production that goes from a mellow soundscape mixed with heavy and fuzzy guitars. Be sure to give the music video directed by Yanya’s sister a watch below.

“I was researching method acting – and from what I read, it’s based on finding this one memory in your life, a life-altering, life-changing memory. The reason why some people find method acting traumatic and maybe not safe mentally, is because you’re always going back to that moment. It can be good or bad but you’re always feeding off the energy, something that’s defined you – and that’s what helps you become the character. It’s a bit like being a musician. When you’re performing, you’re still trying to invoke the energy and emotion of when you first wrote it, in that moment. It definitely feels like you’re having to recreate or step into that headspace.” 

My Method Actor‘ arrives September 13th via Ninja Tune.
