TUNE Nikita Bassi - Rescue
Nikita Bassi has released her brand new single ‘Rescue’. The bold pop song tackles the intricate feelings behind a toxic relationship. It incorporates haunting cathedral organ amongst bright world percussion inspired by her Punjabi-Indian roots.
Regarding the single Nikita says, “‘Rescue’ delves into the emotions behind a toxic relationship - one that everyone knows is doomed, while the people in it are in too much of a bubble to take notice of reality.”
‘Rescue’ has been co-produced with Cores (Solange, The Streets, Gorgon City), who also worked with Nikita on her debut single ‘Satin’. The enchanting R&B laced debut drew comparisons to the likes of Banks and FKA Twigs and saw the singer emerge to great support across the board last month.
Nikita was quick to win great praise across the board with the release of her debut single. ‘Satin’ proved a radio hit with support from Huw Stephens at Radio 1, as well as BBC Asian Network’s Bobby Friction, who featured Nikita as their BBC Introducing emerging artist of the week describing her as, “sweet, sci-fi soul”.
It also received support from Janice Long at BBC Radio Wales and Brody Swain at BBC Introducing. She has also received early high profile critical support from the likes of Harper’s Bazaar India, Flaunt Magazine, In Stereo Magazine, CLASH and many more.
Nikita Bassi is quickly proving herself an important new name in both the UK and India and looks set to cement herself in 2019.
