“I want my music to be real, and relatable to girls my age. I want to sing about things that people think but don’t necessarily talk about”.
Niki Kini is 16 years old. She has grown up in Oxford where her parents, both from Mangalore (India), moved before she was born. She describes her music - Halsey meets M.I.A – as twisted pop, which she delivers with a distinctive powerful vocal. A dedicated Madison Beer fan, she set up a Youtube channel when she was 14 which she kept a secret from her parents, covering Madison’s songs and amassing thousands of streams.
Her first single, Dark Room, a song which explores having feelings for a friend’s boyfriend, is due for release in February 2019.
