NIKI’s second album, ‘Nicole’, scored a four-star review from NME‘s Khyne Palumar, who wrote: “On ‘Nicole’, Zefanya reconnects with her folk-pop roots, ditching the string of co-writers and savvy pop sheen of ‘Moonchild’. She instead reproduces songs written in her teens, embracing both raw confessionals and unapologetic schmaltz.”
Speaking to NME following the release of ‘Nicole’, NIKI walked us through her firsts, including the first time she realised she wanted to be a musician, the first song she ever wrote, her first job and more. Watch that interview here.
A live record, titled ‘Live at the Wiltern’ has also been released digitally, and features live renditions of fan favourites ‘Keeping Tabs’, ‘High School in Jakarta’, ‘Indigo’ and ‘Every Summertime’.
