NIKI drops fantastical video for new single, “Switchblade”

Her new album, ‘Moonchild,’ is on the way.

88rising singer NIKI has previewed her new album, Moonchild, with a haunting video for her latest single, “Switchblade.”

In the clip, the Indonesian musician journeys through a mystical forest, encountering fantastical beasts along the way. At the end of the clip, NIKI comes face to face with the moon, which is “a representation of NIKI’s heritage and homeland,” according to a press release.

“This single marks the beginning of Moonchild’s sonic journey, which is ironic because it was one of the last songs I wrote for the album,” NIKI said in a press release. “‘Switchblade’ represents an iron-clad attitude and outlook—conquering whatever you want, whatever is in your vicinity or in your way.”


Last year, NIKI contributed two solo songs to 88rising’s Head in the Clouds II compilation: “Indigo” and “La La Love You.” Her previous project, Wanna Take This Downtown?, arrived last May.
