NAOMI PILGRIM

Naomi Pilgrim is the Swedish-Barbadian artist who in 2013 charmed the music world with her debut single No Gun. After singing backup for artists like fellow Swede Lykke Li, the time had come for Naomi to fulfil her dreams by performing her own music. Her self-titled EP was showered with praise from music blogs and reviewers alike. British The Guardian put the single House of Dreams on their favourites list, Andy Warhol's Interview magazine snagged the first interview with the artist, and the blogosphere resembled her to Sade and Lauryn Hill. Now Naomi Pilgrim is back with a raw, naked and symphonic second EP, Sink like a stone.

Her new EP Sink like a stone is a powerful and painful reflection of Naomi Pilgrim’s world. Naomi turns herself and society inside out, skilfully melodising political developments like the far right’s progression in Sweden and posing uncomfortable questions about cultural heritage, oppression and fascism.
