    Sevdaliza - "Clear Air"

    It's still hard to know which direction Sevdaliza, a Daily Discovery from earlier in March, will go in, and whether R&B will be part of it at all. "Clear Air," the debut official release from the singer who was born in Iran and left for The Netherlands when she was five years old, is bursting with a potent mix of influences, all tied together by a primal feel which comes across in her voice, the pounding percussion, and the visuals.

    "Clear Air" is about as far from traditional R&B as you could really get, and the difficulty there is in classifying it or filing it neatly under some genre tag is part of its beauty.
