Nikïa – Pretty Brown Skin | Confident with promise

Pretty Brown Skin by Nikia is a 90s inspired synth-pop song. It opens with the accordion, which consistently stays at the core of the sonic experience. The instrument goes through a disco and synth transformation at different points in the track, blending and transcending genres. The lyrics are well written, detailing how a relationship started between the singer and a friend. It is a self-confident expression of her simple beauty. The singer knows that she took him over and now he is like honey on her pretty brown skin. 

Nikïa is a London-based musician and producer, and this is only the start for her. However, the passion for music has been with her for a long time. Nikia has been writing songs and playing the keys since she was only a kid. She has learned production, and now is meddling into different styles to find her unique sound. The production does have room for improvement in the song Pretty Brown Skin. At some parts it feels that the music is colliding with the songwriter’s intentions. That said, there is also a lot of promise. The intelligent use of accordion in between verses, and especially at the end, really shines through.
