The 411:

Sydney-based Iranian rapper Kiyanosh has just unveiled his new six-track EP Dying Alone, featuring previously-released singles ‘Karma’ and ‘4BAR4’.

The artist, who is also a member of hip-hop duo SKID2 and founder of the Spretbot Syndicate record label and collective, describes the release as “A collection of songs I made with my friends during the process of working on my debut album”.

“With every song being radically different to the next, the project essentially presents itself as a smorgasbord of sounds, emotions and ideas, all of which represent some part of me,” Kiyanosh explains.

“I hope that with this project people can gain a stronger understanding of the various sides of Kiyanosh and what I’m really trying to do with my work.”

Live Dates:

Pending the end of the global pandemic.
