Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Wafia magnifies identifiable and idiosyncratic experiences in the form of alternative pop anthems. The gold-selling, Netherlands-born, Australia-based, Iraqi-Syrian, queer songstress relies on a keen sense of observation and sharp pen as she catalogs the world in real-time on her 2020 debut for Atlantic Records.
Wafia recently unveiled her intoxicating new single, “Flowers and Superpowers”, and its dreamy companion video directed by filmmaker/photographer Alexandra Gaville.
Produced by GRAMMY Award-nominee Rogét Chahayed (Travis Scott, DRAM, Louis the Child) and GRAMMY Award-winner Hit-Boy (Travis Scott, Beyoncé, Jay-Z & Kanye West), “Flowers and Superpowers” was co-written by Wafia and Wrabel, with whom she previously collaborated on the 2018 hit, “I’m Good.”
Wafia is currently hard at work recording her long-awaited debut album, due out later this year. She’s returning to Australian shores this year though, to treat us to a national tour.
