NYIKO ANNOUNCES CRUSH EP, SHARES NEW SINGLE “DOMINOES” - (6/19/19)
On the heels of last month’s dating app anthem, NYIKO returns with a sonic treatment poised for the pool parties and hazy clubs of summertime. “Dominoes,” produced by The White Electric, begins with a beautifully understated tropical atmosphere. When the first chorus arrives, it feels distant and anticipatory, like the moments before entering a house party. Midway through we are gifted with a wide-eyed drop as NYIKO croons of two lovers rapidly falling for each other. The momentum continues through the rest of the track, which clocks in at roughly two and half minutes - mimicking the pace, sweetness, and brevity of summer love.
With the release of this single, it has been revealed that both ‘Dominoes” and “9x16” will be included on a forthcoming EP entitled Crush. The EP will include a total of six collaborations from NYIKO and The White Electric.
“Dominoes” is out June 19th and is the second single from the forthcoming Crush EP out August 8th via Trailing Twelve.
