Today’s fire comes courtesy of Niko’Naomi. The dual-threat singer/rapper popped up on my radar via twitter a few months back. Fiendin’ ft. The O’My’s is a quiet three minutes of indie-soul produced by Soul Syndakit. There’s no sing-along chorus or catchy hook here. Fiendin’ is just a girl, some Hindu Kush, a gang of fantastic musicians and a jam session that gets us lost in the vibe of her craft.
Niko’s neo-soul and jazz roots run deep on this one. It drops you directly in a window seat, so listen closely. Keep watch for her debut, Amethyst, in the near future. Niko’Naomi is coming, and you’ve been warned.
