Rotating from one extreme to another, imi strikes a balance that contrasts the familiar, beautiful and organic against a force that is obsessed with deconstruction, the surreal and unconventional. These binary oppositions fracture the music and invigorate the constant tensions between the past and future, the real versus the imagined and the natural versus the artificial. 


‘Born For What?’ is the first release from the Leeds-based artist, fusing elements of Krautrock with ‘throbbing synths, drum and bass rhythms, garage rock styled organ effects and Bjork-meets-Kate Bush-meets-Goldfrapp vocals' (Mark Buckley - Electronic North). Since its release in December 2017, it has been played by Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music and on BBC Music Introducing in West Yorkshire where she made her debut performance live on air.
