HOPELESS KIND

With epic riffs and an infectious barb-wired hook  ‘HOPELESS KIND’ is the latest taste of NXKXTA's debut album. This alt-pop/alt-rock anthem from the multi-creative music artist delves into themes of self-sabotage and fatal forms of escapism. The track is now out via Drowned In Sound.

NXKXTA's raw, urgent vocal backed by crashing live drums and complimented by a searing. guitar solo renders this track destined for the mosh pit.

"With HOPELESS KIND I wanted to reference the emotional spiral you can find yourself in when life doesn't work out the way you expected it would. The disillusionment throws you into this limbo of insecurity, self-doubt, self-sabotage and escapism through nightlife, substance addiction (for some), unhealthy friendship & relationship dynamics, forced fun and reckless enjoyment with people who feel just as miserable and numb as you do, all in the spirit of 'misery likes company' but disguised as just being oh so 'wild and free."

EPHEBOPHILE

NXKXTA releases ‘EPHEBOPHILE’ with her signature smokey vocal, creeping bassline and a sliding dark-rock ’n’ roll sensibility. Guitar riffs descend in brutal minor key, with musical references to be made to the likes of Timber Timbre, The Kills, Nick Cave, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Cramps.    

I wrote this song during a time when I was intensely researching musicians as it was the first time I was recording music of my own”, explains Nikita of ‘EPHEBOPHILE’.

I repeatedly would stumble across disturbing conversations about artists I admired and their conduct with teenagers. So I couldn’t help but look into the topic further and I was stunned to find out that ‘teen’ is the #1 searched-for word in pornography worldwide.

It made me realise just how normalised grooming and being sexualised at a very young age was in my own adolescence and how it shaped me and the teenagers around me.

 

It is especially prevalent in the creative industries due to either a lack of laws and regulations or due to a multitude of loop holes that hinder the protection of children and adolescents.

 

We are finally seeing this topic gaining traction in mainstream media with more individuals opening up about their experiences. However, it is still not safe for survivors to come forward and they currently pay a steep price on a personal level by doing so. I believe that as a society, we really have to work towards changing this.

THE LIKE OF YOU

NXKXTA delivers a sultry new single 'THE LIKES OF YOU'the third infectious track from her highly anticipated debut visual album set for release in 2024.

With smoky vocals reminiscent of Hope Sandoval, twangy guitars à la Sonic Youth, and deep vibrato bass, the song captures a sense

of mystery and intrigue.

THE LIKES

OF YOU

THE LIKES OF YOU gathered attention from a few Official Spotify Playlists including FRESH FINDS & FRESH FINDS POP as well as a feature on an Official Apple Music 'New Music' Playlist as well.

The song has been very well received and as of February 2024 has been streamed over 37k+ times and added to over 600 playlists.

The cinematic video directed by Kassandra Powell depicts NXKXTA lugging around a chained suitcase, symbolizing the stage of a relationship where you realize it's over but can't let go.

As a multifaceted visionary, NXKXTA took charge of the video's creative direction, concept, styling and makeup, playing with gender stereotypes and androgyny.
