colours

nia released her EP Colours, produced entirely by Deron Johnson and Andrea Remanda, today on Bandcamp and iTunes. Bandcamp embedded here, so pay her those $4 (or more!). Voice and instrumentation so worth it and necessary.

My favourite song is “Notes on a History”. It’s just really, really pretty. The EP is a little more downtempo than her work with frequent collaborator and husband Mark de Clive-Lowe, but just as engaging. Check the full project above, and my fave track below.

Lyrics:

Notes on a History
(N. Andrews/ D. Johnson)

We came we saw we conquered all
We loved we laughed surrendered all
You saw yourself for the first time
Too vulnerable you changed your mind

They come they go don’t mind at all
Was it a lie was it a lie
We rise we fall and never bother knowing the Why
I guess that’s life

No one to blame we ran into the mouth of the flame
Not used to the burn you grew cold enough
The sun died enough
Ain’t it crazy how

They come they go and they don’t mind at all
Was it a lie was it a lie
They come they go and they don’t bother wondering why
I guess that’s life

They come they go and they don’t mind at all
Was it a lie was it a lie
We rise we fall and never bother knowing the Why
I guess that’s life
