An expression of her experiences as a Black woman in the music industry.
Producer and vocalist LYZZA is releasing a new mixtape, titled MOSQUITO, via Big Dada this September.
Drawing on alt-pop productions, MOSQUITO is presented as an expression of LYZZA’s experiences as a Black woman in the music industry.
“Because I am Black and make alternative music, I identify with the disruptive and intrusive nature of a mosquito,” she explains.
“The fact that I look the way I look, make the music I make, and you know who I am means somehow I’ve been able to penetrate through the noise and bias.”
MOSQUITO follows her 2019 EP DEFIANCE.
