NIKI RELEASES VISUAL FOR “THE APARTMENT WE WON’T SHARE”
“Something NIKI does really well is get to the emotional heart of the matter.”
“Nicole is filled with such aching ballads and reflective odes to her teenage years… as a whole, it’s a stunning time capsule…”
“Not only does her sound evolve with each new project… but NIKI has full creative control, writing, recording and producing her own music.”
“Nicole is arguably NIKI’s piece-de-resistance that kicks off an exceptional new chapter for the burgeoning songstress.”
“[Nicole] is introspective indie at its best, accompanied by the soulful strums of a guitar and lyrics that are boldly confessional.”
Jakarta-born, LA-based singer-songwriter, and producer NIKI releases the visual for her track “The Apartment We Won’t Share.”
Directed by Isaac Ravishankara, the new visual for “The Apartment We Won’t Share” compliments the nostalgic track that reflects on what could have been with a past relationship. NIKI is contemplative as she strolls through her apartment alone before picking up her guitar to craft the introspective song. Watch the video HERE.
Most recently, NIKI made her NPR Tiny Desk debut where she delivered a carefully crafted & stripped-back performance of a handful of songs from her sophomore album Nicole, before closing with her hit single “Every Summertime.” Watch NIKI’s Tiny Desk performance HERE.
Following her sold-out North American headlining tour last fall, NIKI will be bringing her live show to cities across the globe with her 2023 world tour which will span across North America, Asia, Europe, and Australia. The run also includes performances at festivals including Head in the Clouds NYC & LA, Lollapalooza, and Outside Lands. The full list of dates is below; please visit https://nikizefanya.com/ for more information.
Previously, NIKI released the music video for her track “Backburner.” The video is deliberate and intimate, taking viewers into her world as she watches old footage recorded on her camcorder and re-lives fond memories of a past relationship. Watch the “Backburner” music video HERE.
Last summer, NIKI released her sophomore album Nicole, a project that sees her where she shines, returning to her singer-songwriter roots in a carefully crafted coming-of-age juncture that sees present-day NIKI meet with her teenage self. The album was released to critical acclaim by the likes of NPR, Billboard, Vanity Fair, and V Magazine, who hailed Nicole as “NIKI’s piece-de-resistance that kicks off an exceptional new chapter for the burgeoning songstress.” NIKI also released her live album Live at the Wiltern last month, which features live recordings performed at the final show of NIKI’s sold-out headlining tour at the Los Angeles venue last October.
NIKI has had an impressive career thus far, amassing over 2.1 billion streams worldwide and opening for Taylor Swift on tour when she was just 15. In addition to performing at Coachella and embarking on her headlining North American tour last fall, she has also headlined at 88rising’s Head in the Clouds Festival in Los Angeles, New York, Manila, and Jakarta.

CONNECT WITH NIKI
Since breaking through with her 2018 EP Zephyr, NIKI has made a powerful imprint on the pop scene, amassing a devoted global fanbase with over 2.1 billion streams to date and making history as the first Indonesian artist ever to perform at Coachella. But after delivering her critically acclaimed debut album MOONCHILD, the Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter felt compelled to completely reexamine her artistic process—a move that found her revisiting the vast catalog of unfiltered and indie-folk-leaning songs she’d created in high school. As she returned to the stream-of-consciousness approach to songwriting that defined her earliest material, the 23-year-old musician soon arrived at her sophomore album Nicole: a boldly self-possessed body of work written entirely by NIKI, spotlighting her finespun storytelling and warmly expressive vocals more fully than ever before. With the album’s first half comprised of new or never-before-heard songs and its latter half featuring her favorite tracks from her widely beloved YouTube channel, NIKI imbues her songs with the kind of lived-in specificity that immediately reconnects the listener with the rush and devastation of their own first love.
