Nikki Nack

tUnE - yArDs / 4AD Records
Featured: Week starting 5th May / Drivetime

After self-producing her two previous albums, Bird-Brains (2009) and Whokill (2011), tUnE-yArDs is collaborating with Malay (Frank Ocean, Alicia Keys, Big Boi) and John Hill (Rihanna, Shakira, M.I.A) for the playful result called Nikki Nack.

Percussively dominant, the album is an audible collection of bursting colors, simultaneously blended with hyper energetic pop sounds, yet gently restrained within  Haitian drumming patterns and African Polyrhythms. tUnE’s voice is thicker, stronger and more experimental than ever as she shifts from organised melodies to small chats in-between lines.
