When she first began performing live nearly every set would end with Defne in tears. With the nakedly confessional nature of her songs it wasn't difficult to understand why. The bedroom pop musician and multimedia artist from Toronto, Ontario is one of the brightest new artists in Canada. Debut EP, Gentle Persuasion, features four tracks of reverb-heavy guitar, organ, tambourine, and vocals. Songs about emotional abuse, eating disorders, and setting oneself on fire have never been so catchy or sung so sweetly. The haunting, gray songs are matched with Parisian photographs and a turquoise cassette tape. All artwork and photos by Defne.
