It delves into the profound inevitability of change and the emotions that accompany such transitions.
Stylistically, 'Lady Shol' falls into the alternative-indie genre, weaving together gentle, dreamy atmospheres with a subtle touch of jazz. In a departure from her previous works, Niki embraced a novel approach by integrating live instrumentation performed by her band, adding an authentic and tangible dimension to her music. Collaborating with Liverpool-based producer Tom Anderson, the project came to life in the Kempston Street Studios.
Having graced stages from Sound City Festival to a captivating performance at LIMF Festival, Niki has shared her artistry, even supporting her favorite French band, Juniore, during their Liverpool tour. Garnering support from BBC Introducing, BBC Radio 6 Music, and BBC Radio 1, Niki is set to release her second single, 'No Regrets,' from the upcoming EP, Lady Shol, on February 2nd, 2024. This alternative indie composition promises an emotional journey with uplifting vibes, a dynamic rhythm section, and a dreamy quality that reflects Niki's inaugural attempt at crafting music that is both calmly atmospheric and engaging. With anticipation building, 'No Regrets' sets the stage for a sophisticated sonic experience, inviting you to discover the unique world Niki is poised to unveil.
