Nikita Bassi – “Satin” single
“‘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 which finds Nikita Bassi pulling together sounds from her Punjabi-Indian roots.
The likable tune contains a relatable storyline, silky vocals, and glossy instrumentation scented with an electro-R&B-pop aroma.
Nikita Bassi has always lived in the UK. But she connects most strongly to her Asian roots through music.
When writing she uses the likes of Indian and African percussion (dholak, khol, tabla) alongside bansuri flutes and cathedral organ, delivering great depth to her mesmeric music.
‘Satin’ is a stunning release from Bassi and a tantalizing first taste of what to expect from the singer this year.
