Welcome back NIKO!
He’s the promising Milan-born singer-songwriter responsible for supplying us with a gorgeous redition of The Doors classic “Light My Fire” all the way back in December of 2018, which sounded something like George Michael for the new generation.
A little over a year later, and the now LA-based talent is back with a brand new offering: “Try,” a gorgeous buoyant slice of synth-pop that pays homage to the glory days of euro-pop. (Always a win in my book, obviously.)
“This song is dedicated to my partner, promising that I’m going to try as best as I can to celebrate my feelings for him in a letter, or a song,” NIKO said in a statement.
“I don’t wanna live a life/ Dancing on my own at night/ I’m just tryna figure out/ There’s so much I wanna say/ That I wanna say, so I’ll try, try…,” NIKO earnestly coos along the chorus. It’s a luscious throbber filled with major earworm melodies (those “Try” cries seal the deal instantly).
Some time away clearly does a body good! We love to hear it.
NIKO’s new single is available to stream on Spotify and Apple Music here!
