the idea of convention versus non-convention or mainstream versus indie or any of those quote-unquote ‘conflicts’ has never crossed my mind. - Solange

Lady of the indie scene Solange Knowles shows no sign of slowing down. There isn't a celebrity/industry party that Ms Knowles hasn't DJ'ed or performed at, since 2009 Solange decided to go down the independent route and it was the best move she could ever have made. In this feature for Complex Magazine Solange gets ready to perform with her band at one of NYC's most famous museums MoMA -The Museum of Modern Art.

 “Hopefully everyone’s had a little Champagne,” Solange quips to the crowd as she takes the MoMA stage. Her band starts breezing through tracks from True, seven slices of sultry funk pop—think “Paisley Park” meets Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis—released last November on the Brooklyn-based indie label Terrible Records. Surrounded by orchid light, she glides into the churning groove of “Some Things Never Seem to Fucking Work.” Then she launches into the EP’s forlorn standout, “Bad Girls,” singing, “And still I try to pull you into my own hurricane/It’s like you spot me trying from a thousand miles away.” - Complex
