One thing is clear: the music of nihiti exists as living proof that the end of the world has not been exhausted as a subject of musical exploration. Of the little that’s actually been confirmed, what’s known is nihiti is currently based in NYC, has done extensive work scoring films and theater productions in New York’s ever-burgeoning performance scene, has made appearances at several large Berlin art exhibitions, and has recently started popping up at various larger festivals across Europe.
The first full length LP, other people’s memories (with an absolutely stunning cover illustration from Berlin based artist Viktor Timofeev) is a whirlwind tour through places you’ve almost touched but never been, from pop hooks and stomping drums to crashing waves of destruction, from gentle cello/piano duets to screaming synthesizers and epic auditory assaults. nihiti songs never linger – they come, assault your existence, and dissolve back into the aether.
