Video: Niia, "Generation Blue"

FADER PREMIERE

New York's Niia, the former jazz singer whose memorable "Made for You" video we also premiered earlier this year, continues her work with Rhye/Quadron's Robin Hannibal on "Generation Blue," off a forthcoming album that Hannibal entirely produced, due next year. There's a seriousness to the black-and-white, literally slow burning video, and to the slow strings, but a sly cheeriness to the music too, with the snippety vocal ipps and a noodling, pitch-bending guitar that pops in every once in a while, creating an effect like you're catching a wink through a glum crowd. The track and its instrumental are out now on iTunes.
