Yannick Illunga (Petite Noir), the self-styled founder of ‘Noir Wave’, has been relatively quiet in 2014. After making waves worldwide with singles ‘Disappear’, ‘Pressure’ and ‘Till We Ghosts’, it seemed inevitable that an LP or EP would be released, and these suspicions were backed up by the occasional tweet or Facebook post confirming his work in the studio.
This morning he posted on Facebook that he would be returning to the studio to record an album. He also stated that he had recorded a full album, but decided to scrap that and do something new with the songs. The exact reasons for all the delays would appear to be a mixture of his own musical progression and external factors.
Below is his post in full:
“Nearly time to start recording my album and start the whole process again. Been writing for like almost 2 years now. Recorded an album last year but decided not to use it and made new plans for those songs. (Which you will hear soon). Sitting on like 60± demos, which are the best songs i have ever written. Been dying to release music and play shows but labels and admin.
Thank you for sticking around and believing in the Noirwave.”
