NIKO WALTERS

DISHES UP BITE-SIZED FUNK WITH A TWIST ON HOT NEW SINGLE

‘NOT MY NEIGHBOUR’

New Zealand singer/songwriter Niko Walters today releases his new single ‘Not My Neighbour’. Produced by Mikey Dam and Rory Noble, ‘Not My Neighbour’ follows previously released lead single ‘Escape’ to be the second taste of Niko’s forthcoming debut album due out later this year.

“The creation of this album was quite visceral for me. I wanted to lay out all my feelings bare, and wave them into stories I’ve experienced and witnessed,” Niko says of his forthcoming full-length project. “The messages contract and pull into different directions, but that’s a part of growth – dealing with those highs and lows”.

Creation of music is quite visceral for Niko Walters. Sonically, there are nods to NZ sounds and patterns, but put through a different lens. The structure of his songs draw on familiar rhythms, all while playing around with the textures and flipping them in a unique way.

After launching onto the music scene a little over a year ago, Niko has already racked up over 3 million streams across Spotify, with fan-favourite track ‘Moving On’ tipping over into 1 million streams earlier in the year.
