Niki Black Premieres Debut Single, “Not Coming Up”

Born and raised in Los Angeles, indie-pop songstress Niki Black has crafted a sound as unique as herself. Growing up in a mixed heritage household, Niki blended her father’s Chicago blues roots with her mother’s love of Iranian pop and classical music.  She also cites flamboyant Operatic arias, the expressiveness of musical theater, as well as Lorde, Blood Orange, and Years & Years as major influences, “They’re the perfect blend of otherworldliness, beauty, modernity, and rebellion,” shares Niki.

Niki Black just dropped her debut single, “Not Coming Up” and it’s everything we’ve been craving from pop music!  The single is dark, brooding, and beautiful, inspired by her first queer relationship.  Niki is set to release her debut EP soon which closely mirrors Dante’s Divine Comedy and inspired by her studies in feminist theology loosely describes the journey from heaven to oblivion, or hell.  “I wanted to retell that descent from a modern feminine perspective, one of the damned, which some of us may feel like sometimes, or all the time….whether it’s from religion directly, from a relationship, or from yourself,” shares Niki.

Album Preview: Bearings – “Blue In The Dark”

Ottowa based pop punk band Bearings have had an incredible year and they’re getting ready to skyrocket their blend of bouncey emo rock into the stratosphere with their eagerly awaited debut full-length album Blue In The Dark due out October 12th on Pure Noise Records.  Since releasing the “Nothing Here Is Permanent” EP in September 2017, the quartet have quickly become one of the most buzzworthy bands in the underground pop punk scene.

Bearings’ debut album will hook you from the first song and have you singing along the entire time.  In an era where too many bands have resorted to a shorter record format with too much filler, Bearings are bringing back the “all killer, no filler” approach.

Each song on Blue In The Dark propels the record ahead and lyrically tugs on your heartstrings.  “Beautiful Places” tackles the feeling of not being enough, whatever that means to you, while “Stuck In A Doorframe” chugs along from the first note and is easily one of our favorites on the record.  Other stand out tracks on the records include the 90’s Alt Rock infused “Careless Clarity,” the dreamy, steel string acoustic “Tide,” and blissfully happy “Eyes Closed.”

Watch the brand new video for “Aforementioned” below.
