Canadian alt pop trio Nikki’s Wives have released a brand new acoustic video take on their track “Another Lie”, taken from their debut EP, For E*V*E*R, out now.
After living through years of excess and infatuation, it’s all too fitting that Nikki’s Wives should find inspiration for their debut EP “For E*V*E*R” in the form of a powerful obsession. Locking themselves away on a month-long creative binge, the Toronto alt pop group has resurfaced with their first six songs. The new tracks deconstruct difficult emotions like jealousy and lust, while drenching them in seductive synths and high gloss pop. Nikki’s Wives’ isolation while crafting the new music shaped a collection of songs that disguise their depth as instant gratification but reveal a deeper meaning after the high wears off. Mixed by Matty Green (The Weeknd,Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran) and produced by Alastair Sims (Walk Off The Earth, Rush, Three Days Grace), “For E*V*E*R” is a pop-inspired experiment featuring Nikki Whitehead’s smoky vocal style floating over vintage synths and faux brass.
Nikki’s Wives is Nikki Whitehead (vocals), Dylan Lauzon (guitar) and Nate Baylor (drums). Although “For E*V*E*R” is the group’s debut release, they are no strangers to the recording process.
