Porcelain id is the pseudonym under which Hubert Tuyishime (they/them/their) has been unleashing unique songs since 2020. Emerging in recent years as one of the promising talents on the Belgian scene, they won the renowned Sound Track competition, built a solid live reputation and was called 'a folk singer for new times' by national newspaper De Morgen. With their crushing debut album ‘Bibi:1’due on Unday Records on February 16, Porcelain id seems to be on their way to conquering a place all their own, far away from formats and from the beaten path.
We get to share one last song from Porcelain id’s debut record ahead of its release. ‘Moon’ is exemplary of Hubert Tuyishime and producer Youniss Ahamad’s approach to influences and composition. This genre-defying piano-driven gem is tender and fierce at the same time.“I got inspired by Nina Simone's extraordinary live performance of "Stars/Feelings" and a Spotify playlist I made with a girl I spent time with. It's amazing how music can bookmark these encounters. Moon delves into the album's overarching motifs of disillusionment while tenderly paying homage to actual beauty. The intention was not to conceal a sense of self-entitlement but to articulate it as an inherent facet of ordinary life, a narrative if you will, that we construct for ourselves.”
