NIKO Revamps Classic “Light My Fire”

Following his debut single THE ONE , NIKO covers “Light My Fire”, an iconic song by The Doors that was reinvented by José Feliciano in 1968.

“Out of Body,” THE YEARS’ newest release, tells of a lone entertainer wrapped up in a mostly delusional existence, performing for an audience that doesn’t necessarily exist.

DEWR – Front Line single + music video

The title of the daring new EP from up and coming San Francisco-based solo artist DEWR – AKA Brian Dewar – says a lot about his progression as an artist. Unlike his previous work, which was often rife with digitally ambient layers and coats of sheers noise, Dream Pop is uncluttered. Uncomplicated. Unencumbered. It’s borne along by its own sense of urgency that psychoanalyzes its own disenchantment.
