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 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.
With intense, poetic lyrics exploring complex themes like narcissism, escapism & heartbreak, NXKXTA uses her platform to spark important conversations about mental health, sexuality, and societal issues.
As a multifaceted visionary, NXKXTA took charge of the video's creative direction, concept, styling and makeup, playing with gender stereotypes and androgyny.
‘VERBAL VENOM’ is a song about the impact of words, about how language can be used negatively to create an abusive, detrimental impact on someone.
Nowadays, the hate tends to additionally spread digitally and internationally like a wildfire and take on a venomous life of its own.
Nikita feels that the song is especially relevant right now, with the post-pandemic frustration and anger at such a high, causing many to lash out verbally without thinking of the repercussions and suffering caused by their words.
She wrote the lyrics based on her experience growing up with a verbally abusive father as well as having witnessed people that she holds dear face verbal harassment online.
The harm caused is often not taken seriously, so many tend to suffer in silence while individuals with a platform or in the public eye are expected to just put up with hate as an inevitable consequence of their profession.
'DRACULA' is the first release from NXKXTA's upcoming debut album.
The song is about taking your power back from a Narcissist.
It was written as an empowering hymn to encourage the listener to stay strong when they are struggling from current or past narcissistic abuse. All with the aim of reminding them of their own courage and resilience.
