Starting the year deep into the feels is niko! with his latest track “MAKE ME FEEL NEW”. Taking inspiration from Childish Gambino’s “Redbone”, niko! taps into a sultry and raw side of R&B that’s filled with lo-fi synths and off-beat drums which help deliver an experimental indie aesthetic. As the second single off his upcoming project, ‘love fi’, this track specifically deals with themes of desire, doubt, and the way a person makes another feel:
Could you make me feel new again?
Cause I’ve been here for so long
Waiting for you baby
Tell me something I don’t know
