Artist Discovery: NIA (니아)August 4, 2010
NIA – Every Night
Nowadays, I’m starting to get tired of all these K-pop groups, but I still love listening to Big Bang (but I consider them more hip-hop than pop), SHINee, 2NE1, with Wonder Girls on the side, and I do love some Super Junior from time to time. I was inspired to make this new segment called Artist Discovery because I wish to share a wide variety of talented and underrated artists, bands, and groups from both Japan and Korea. So if you’re looking for new artist to add to your music list, this may help. Without further ado, I present to you Korean rock girl’s band, NIA.
NIA is a four member modern rock girl’s band (meaning they play their own instruments) formed by hip-hop producer and singer MC Han Sai. They are currently signed under the record label, Run to Asia Enterin. The band released their first single, “My Everything”, on April 23 of last year and gained much attention in the indie scene. Their second single, “Goodbye” was released in December 2, 2009. Their most recent single, “Remember the Forest”, is their third single and was released July 28, 2010.
I don’t see a lot of Korean bands, the only bands I know of is C.N.Blue, F.T Island, and TRAX, but it’s nice to see a female rock band. Their sound is lively, spunky, and fresh. Jeon So Yeon (vocals) has such an enriching and beautiful voice, it’s just amazes me. I’m falling in love with this band and patiently awaiting a mini-album or album. “Every Night“, the track in this post, is becoming a favorite of mine and I am diggin’ their new single! You should certainly check out these ladies!
