Headz Gone West

If you’ve been following Nia Archives on Instagram (if not, now’s your chance), you’ll know how uniquely infectious her tracks are — bubbling collages of choppy liquid jungle drums, delicate guitar and keys, and a voice that’s part Eva Lazarus, part Kate Nash, but all her own at the same time. Boosted by her EQ50-led mentorship with the iconic V Recordings, she’s readied her debut EP. It’s the way Nia’s voice is layered and overlapped that’s really special throughout, creating a swirl of harmonies that’s soulful but shifting — keeping you on your toes. Essential.
