Nikita Bassi is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter based in London, England. Not too long ago, she released an emotional pop tune, entitled, “Rescue”, produced by Alex “Cores” Hayes.
Nikita Bassi – “Rescue” single
“‘Rescue’ delves into the emotions behind a toxic relationship. One that everyone knows is doomed, while the people in it are in too much of a bubble to take notice of reality.” – Nikita Bassi
‘Rescue’ tells a bittersweet tale of a woman who is on the verge of taking her love away from her significant other. Apparently, she and her partner share a problematic relationship that’s on the verge of breaking up.
The likable tune contains a relatable storyline and ear-welcoming vocals. Also, the song possesses lush instrumentation flavored with haunting cathedral organ and bright world percussion.
‘Rescue’ follows in the heels of Bassi’s highly acclaimed debut single, entitled, “Satin”. The enchanting R&B-laced debut draws comparisons to the likes of Banks and FKA Twigs.

“‘Satin’ was written at a time when I was trying to write love songs but had never really been in love. I was younger and had a Disney-esque idea in my head of what it would feel like. It’s funny how I’ve grown up and learned that love is so much more complex (and beautiful) than that. I initially self-produced the track as an idea and didn’t revisit it for a while. But then I met Cores who somehow took that whole dreamy vision and planted it into the song.” – Nikita Bassi
‘Satin’ is a touching love song that finds Nikita Bassi pulling together sounds from her Punjabi-Indian roots.
The song was co-produced alongside Cores (Solange, Gorgon City, The Streets), who later built on Bassi’s bedroom-produced tracks to create the uniquely crafted “Satin” EP.
“They’re all love songs of some kind. Also, the tracks dive more into elements that can come along with it like immaturity, toxicity, fear, comfort and caution.” – Nikita Bassi speaks on her upcoming EP
Nikita Bassi is quickly proving herself as an important new name in both the UK and India.
Her debut EP will feature her “Rescue” and “Satin” singles which introduced her as one of the most exciting new acts in the game.
