Sudan Archives isn’t from some far-off land, as her name implies, but Cincinnati, Ohio. Born Brittney Denise Parks, the singer/violinist has been known as Sudan since she was a teen, a name she not only assumed but has come to embody in her sound. Her combination of earthy and electro sounds is reminiscent of trip-hop, though instead of jumping off from jazz and hip-hop, it’s rooted in R&B and African sounds. Its ethereally groovy, pared-back production is magnetic, a mix of bowing and pizzicato plucking that’s often layered, looped, and/or effected to add texture and dimension to her compositions, while her violin limit-pushing and experimentation remain accessible.
