Canadian rockers @NikkisWives bring you 3 fiery new songs: “Playing With Fire”, “Bones”, and “Shaking Hands With the Devil”

NIKKI’S WIVES, “Playing With Fire”, “Bones”, and “Shaking Hands With the Devil”

Canadian rock trio Nikki’s Wives continues to impress with now what amounts to a full EP’s worth of releases in 2019.  Three new songs show that they are contenders for mainstream and alternative rock radio airplay.  “Playing with Fire” is the most powerful and accessible, supported by an intriguing video which you’ll find up top.  “Bones” (below) is the fist-pumper of the lot with potent guitar and drum work.  “Shaking Hands With the Devil” (also below) is a unique interpretation of the Faust story about a rocker selling her soul to the devil.  As tight as Dylan and Nate are on guitar and drums, it’s the strong songwriting and always compelling vocals by Nikki that hold everything together.  Be sure to catch Nikki’s Wives in concert this Fall to demonstrate how they vividly bring these songs to life in performance.

Nikki’s Wives plays The Mod Club in Toronto on Sunday, November 17, 2019.

Find the beauty under the “Bones” by @SteLouse featuring @TilianPearson in a @Flapomusic remix

STéLOUSE featuring TILIAN, “Bones” (Flapo remix)

It will definitely take a few listens, but “Bones” by Colorado’s StéLouse (aka Ross Ryan) featuring L.A. singer/songwriter Tilian (of the project Dance Gavin Dance) is a real grower, thanks to a low-key but delightful remix by Colombian producer Flapo.  It’s a song about staying in a magic moment for as long as possible, definitely a positive change of pace for rising dance producer StéLouse who is already signed to the renown Casablanca label.  Tilian’s vocal is suitably caught up in the moment, while Flapo adds all kinds of delicate instrumentation.  Maybe the song could have gone a little bigger with its beats but somehow it might detract from the rest of the production.  Anyway, you can get this remix of “Bones” as a free download at the link above.
