88Rising Heartthrob NIKI Drops ‘Switchblade’ Along With Magical Music Video

Having stormed onto the scene in 2018 and has since supported Halsey, dropped debut EP ‘Zephyr’, and is set to perform at the 2020 edition of Coachella. The ‘lowkey’ Indonesian songstress NIKI returns today with a brand new single called ‘Switchblade’, a spacey rendition and her first release of the year is built around a landscape of mellow production, leaving her to standout.

Switchblade is different from the R&B infused sounds of ‘Say My Name’ and ‘Vintage’ while keeping her unique and soft voice at the front. She throws her foot firmly back in the world of pop, and yet she’s done it with the same style and undeniable skill. The song’s artwork shows her lying in a field of flowers under glowing light, and fits with the lyrics which plant her under the stars and looking far into the skies.

On the new song, NIKI explores beginning a new path and taking risks. While it appears to be about new adventures it could also be about staying in a relationship ready with her ‘Switchblade’, however, it represents the courage to be brave and in control of her own destiny and reminds us we can take on challenges without staying with what simply feels comfortable. Take a listen to the song below and take a peek at the music video where she pulls off a new blonde look in a galactic forest.
