Nia Archives shares timeless snapshot into her life on new EP “Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against Tha Wall”

Today, new gen junglist and inimitable rising star Nia Archives shares her highly anticipated new EP Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against Tha Wall via HIJINXX/Island Records. As the sun begins to stream in through the windows and euphoria and post-club dishevelment intermingle, Nia Archives inspiration for this latest body of work takes hold. A timeless snapshot into the most recent chapter of her life, on the EP Nia shares six jungle tracks all with different moods to soundtrack her story including recent singles “Baianá” (15M + Global Streams), “So Tell Me…” (BBC Radio 1 A-List) and latest “Conveniency”.

Exploring topics including love and loss, rejection, estrangement, the come up and the come down, on Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against Tha Wall, lyrically Nia reveals a new level of maturity in a coming of age, in soon to be an instant classic sonic project that leans back into her songwriting talent. New unheard single “That’s Tha Way Life Goes’, offers a window into Archives’ future as she plays with both her musical and vocal ability as she ponders unrequited love. Collaboration with Irish singer-songwriter Maverick Sabre yielded “No Need 2 Be Sorry, Call Me?” is a full circle moment with one of her musical inspirations. The EP’s eponymous final track, with its production-heavy sound sampling the voices of her own friends, brings us back to real life, rubbing bleary eyes as sunrise makes itself known. In her own words, she shares:

It’s the most exciting project I’ve made yet and it’s a window into the future and the kind of artist I wanna become. It’s like Headz Gone West 2.0, with these new techniques I’ve learned through a bit of trial and error so it’s a lot more of the song-based project with a couple of club moments.”
