Can you leave the Safe Island?
After release of five singles in 2018, the Danish electro-pop artist Nille Nyc is now ready with her next single, Safe Island. This release marks a major change in her sound to a more urban, dark sound. The single was played at DR P3’s show ‘Vidundergrunden’ with a promise from Nille to release it if it got airplay. It did.
“Safe Island” mixes an extreme edgy bass with a crackling underground sound with Nille’s intense vocal surfing on top of a wave of synths. The single demonstrates in a daring manner Nille Nyc’s emerging producer skills.
Nille Nyc says: ‘The song is about daring to let go of all the control, which is forced upon us as human beings in a modern and hectic world full of speed limits, parking rules, regulations and mental barriers. At the same time, I personally jump into the deep sea by releasing my very first self-produced single. This is my personal, cultivated, urban sound taken directly from my inner self. This is the sound of the change I am undergoing captured in a dark, electro-pop track.’
The single is released prior to the release of Nille Nyc’s debut ep, PowerPainPillsPercussion, which will celebrate Nille as a genuine fighter.
‘Safe Island’ is released digitally Friday 29 March.
