BEST NEW TRACKS: NIIA - LAST NIGHT IN LOS FELIZ
Watch out Lana Del Rey! There’s a new cool girl in town romanticizing Los Angeles with an intoxicating croon.
New York-based songstress NIIA is back with a smoking hot new single called “Last Night In Los Feliz” and we can’t wait to share it with you.
The track is a slow-grooving banger full of articulate instrumentation that serves as the perfect platform to showcase her smoky-smooth vocals. Things kick off with lonesome keys, echoing beats, and subtle atmospherics to amp up the tack’s haunting and moody feel. “I’m letting it/ yeah I’m letting it go” she admits over orchestral strings that swell into a slow, intoxicating groove that amps up after the 2:00 mark. Just when you think it’s about to end, the mood and intensity heats up with gorgeous backing vocals and menacing strings and soft percussion, that allow you to understand why this track is totally justified in being over 5 minutes in length.
Oh, and this song was also featured in Kylie Jenner’s recent short film. So, I think it’s safe to say that 2017 is going to be a pretty good year for Niia, and we can’t wait.
