Today minimal electronic sensation CIFIKA premieres the single and video for “MOMOM,” her collaboration with indie rockstar Hyuk Oh. “MOMOM” precedes CIFIKA’s upcoming February EP ‘PRISM’, which is to be supported by the largest ever North American tour for a Korean artist with stops in more than 20 cities, including Austin for SXSW. Additional dates for March and April will be announced soon. “MOMOM” shines the spotlight on the Producer/Singer/Songwriter’s first collaboration with a male artist.
Gifted with DIY production skills, and a majestic voice that’s textured as if sung from within a deep cave, CIFIKA composes music that evokes a futuristic dimension and otherworldly sound. Her unique blend of ethereal sonics and deep beats has propelled her from South Korea’s underground scene and sets her apart as one of the “new wave kids thriving outside of the K-Pop Machine” (VICE).
Signed by Third Culture Kids, CIFIKA deftly blends genres like R&B and low-fi with dark electronic soundscapes and combines lyrics in both English and Korean, creating her own genre often described by press as “entirely self-invented and undefined, a harmonious clashing of cultures.”
