88rising have announced a new compilation, Head in the Clouds II, with NIKI’s hauntingly beautiful new song, “Indigo.”
On the track, which was produced by Rogét Chahayed, the Indonesian crooner ponders the lifespan of a relationship while savoring her favorite marijuana strain. “How far out does the indigo go? Boy, let’s find out, take the longer way home / Have my body all superimposed right on top of yours, oh / As far as the indica goes / I’m hating that you’re still in your clothes,” she sings on the breathy chorus.
The “Indigo” music video goes down a more insidious road. In the Daniel Cloud Campos-directed clip, NIKI presides over a lavish, indigo-hued mansion, served by a troupe of obedient butlers. She dines with a suitor whom she brainwashes into becoming another loyal servant.
Head in the Clouds II is the sequel to 88rising’s 2018 Head in the Clouds comp. The follow-up was executive-produced by Joji. No release date has been confirmed yet.
