Indigo – [NIKI]

88rising’s reigning pop queen NIKI returns this week with some new mid-summer heat on her single “Indigo”.

Following her EP ‘wanna take this downtown’ which dropped earlier this year, the Indonesian singer-songwriter picks the tempo back up on this song and matches that upbeat energy with an equally captivating music video. NIKI’s hit her stride as an artist by walking a line between pop and RnB, and “Indigo” floats comfortably between the two genres, combining catchy melodies that carry an undeniable influence of soul in them with shimmering pop production. NIKI’s crystal clear vocals shine on “Indigo” as well, gracing the track’s tongue-twisting lyrics with ease and an airy vocal style.

“Indigo” is the first single off 88rising’s forthcoming compilation album, ‘Head in the Clouds II’. With Rich Brian’s new album, and releases from other artists such as Joji, August08, and now NIKI, 88rising continues to gain traction and momentum from their impressive roster. Moreover, by releasing her solo track as the lead single, it seems the label is ready to give NIKI the spotlight she deserves. Watch NIKI’s new video for “Indigo” below:
