We only have the bandwidth to cover so much but I know I’ve been familiar with Niko Rose for quite a bit, he’s been on the playlist before but he’s reaching new heights with each new song he drops and is making it quite apparent that his music demands attention. He’s yet another fine young talent out of Arizona, with a vocal tone that quite honestly reminds me of Rex Orange County but the style isn’t quite the same. Niko’s got a more hazy, cushy sound that typically includes mesmerizing synths and elements that really make his songs feel comfortable. As time goes by and he subsequently releases more music, he keeps getting better at making these tunes better, more memorable and cozier and “Early Morning” is surely one of the finest ones. Listen to this one this morning with your cup of coffee.
