Nikki Oniyome recently released the slow disco song save me, and their core listeners covered their tears with glitter and gave it a spin. The upcoming album, however, is constituted of ambient and mournful beats, this time experimenting with new-age elements and psychoacoustics. With a slight nod to the works of Portishead, Björk, Fever Ray, Lamb, the song based album is colored by unusual sounds and weird ideas in the production, making an alluring backdrop to the distinct female vocal.
Nikki Oniyome is the heart child of songwriter, vocalist and guitarist Lisa Canlinha, producer Jørgen Skjulstad (aka Center of the Universe), and bass player Vebjørn Axelsen. In 2017 they released their first two singles, followed by their debut EP 水 Sui/Mizu in 2018, described by reviewers as «installation pop» (Super World Indie Tunes), «strangely beautiful and strangely twisted» (Your Dead Partner), captivating «with unusual sounds, weird ideas and a successful production» (Global Music Magazine).
