NYIKO goes offline with “9x16” (Prod. The White Electric) - (5/29/19)
NYIKO and The White Electric first collaborated on the breakout single “In The Middle” back in 2017. The song went on to be featured on an influencer compilation via Heard Well and was picked up by SONY/ATV.
Since then, NYIKO, based in Los Angeles, and The White Electric, living in Boston, have been honing in on their collaborative sound. Sending instrumental and vocal ideas back and forth over email, they restructure, rework, and enhance moments until sounds coalesce as if they were written in the same room.
Today, we are pleased to announce the release of “9x16.” What begins as an intimate inquiry into internet dating ascends into a dance floor proclamation - that we put down our phones, get up, and get offline. It’s an exciting blend of future house, synth bass and percussion, new wave analog leads, and vocal melodies that carry a mature pop sensibility.
“9x16” is out May 29th on digital via Trailing Twelve.
