Niia - "BTSTU"

If You Like: Rhye, AlunaGeorge, Jessie Ware

Jazz-trained New York pianist and singer Niia has a voice that digs deep into the soul. Between touring with Wyclef Jean and performing James Bond-themed shows, she has been taking time to focus on her own creative efforts. She has released one single, "Made For You," from her upcoming debut album (due out this summer), but to me, it is her cover of Jai Paul's "BTSTU" that stands out. The chilling, minimalist beat floats behind her voice, stretched to its lower limits. Smooth synths add to the mix, making this the perfect sad, sleepy track to zone out to before bedtime. Enjoy.
