Billions Welcomes Sudan Archives

Billions proudly announces our newest client, Sudan Archives. The 23-year-old self-taught violinist and vocalist mixes elements of R&B, West African fiddling, and experimental electronic in her writing. Her debut, Sudan Archives EP, was released digitally in July 2017 and on vinyl in October. She has been featured on Rolling Stone’s “10 New Artists You Need To Know” list, describing her sound as “Where ancient West African fiddles meets future R&B.”

Pitchfork describes Sudan Archives’ sound, saying “her influences waft atop her own hip-hop infused electronic music but do not overwhelm it, her individualism filling out the frame.” Vogue describes her song, “Paid,” writing “It starts off with just a folksy drum pattern, but Sudan layers her soft coos and buzzing synthesizer over it, creating a dulcet, rhythmic introduction to her idiosyncratic mix of organic and inorganic sounds.”

The New York Times writes about her unique sound, saying “Looped violin riffs interlock with layers of string plucks and wood-tapping percussion as she delivers light-touch, stream-of-consciousness R&B koans.”
