  • Debut EP by Nikki Oniyome!

    Nikki Oniyome 鬼嫁日記’s first EP mixes elements from 80’s retromusics, electro, indie, folk and psychedelia. The new EP is a real earworm with dramatic vocals, intriguing lyrics and a sound that approaches the cinematic.

    Nikki Oniyome 鬼嫁日記 is the heart child of songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Lisa E. She has recently been recording with producer Jørgen Skjulstad (aka Center of the Universe). In 2017 they released two singles, the last single Lady Be Trueful has over twenty thousand streams on Spotify by this date. The new EP this takes their electronic sound further. The explorative and dynamic productions makes an alluring backdrop to the distinct female vocale. Artists such as Neon Indian, Four Tet, Mazzy Star, Lana del Rey, Portishead, and Cocteau Twins are good references for this EP.

    Nikki Oniyome 鬼嫁日記’s EP is named 水 Sui or mizu, meaning “Water”, which in Japanese mythology represents the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world. The lyrics are centered around uncertainty, helplessness, and the need for other human beings. The music blends into the lyrics just as water, continually taking on new forms. The lyrics is inspired by troubadourism, exploring themes of love, religion and oppression with dark humor and and twisted theatricality.
