[Indie/Pop] Nived – Shame

Nived
Shame

It’s always exciting seeing a new project come to life. Today we share with you one such instance with the debut of Nived via the single, “Shame.” With such a strong first step, Nived is taking a stance as an artist that everyone needs to know.

“Shame” blurs the lines between genres, imploring sensibilities from indie, to pop to soulful R&B. This sensual mixture of styles may be hard for some to manage, but Nived’s superb songwriting and tastefully catchy elements from the instrumental to the vocal lead to an addictive hit record. Look out for more from Nived and stay up to date with what’s coming through his social media. You’re among the first on-board, so make sure to share with your amigos so you can be that cool, hip friend that finds the gems early.

TMN: Superdream, your debut album, just dropped a few days ago. How excited were you to release it?

TMN: This is really your coming out party with singing on your own tracks. How did that come to be?
