NAIPIA combine Indie and pop genres, leaving audiences with addictive melodies etched into their minds. Songs about misspent youth, growth of the soul, and hard lessons learnt, NAIPIA take you to a place of self-reflection whilst shining a light on the beauty of what’s to come.
The message: It’s ok to not be ok.
Vocalist George can be found at the front of the stage, shoe-less, in a power stance insisting you feel every word that leaves his mouth. At his side, cousin Harry on bass, who, despite never playing bass before the band’s creation, has a natural talent at sitting in the pocket with simple, melodic grooves and Matt on drums who holds the band together with his tight-knit, and creative rhythm.
Having signed to Golden Robot Records in March 2020, Naipia are back in the studio and working on new material which is being released over the next 8 months.
Naipia are releasing their brand new track, 'Lonely' on the 14.02.20. Having aired and exclusive live performance in the BBC Live Lounge, the track has already gained a large amount of press, prior to its release.
'Lonely' was written by lead singer George on Valentines day 2019, when he was feeling alone, and in need of comfort on a day that makes many feel lost, and uncertain of themselves. When taking it to the band, Naipia quickly realised this was not a song about loneliness or heartbreak, but a song that embraces being alone, being comfortable, content and focusing on friends, families and your inner self. The message is one of self-love and for anyone seeking comfort on days where some struggle, Lonely is that anthem to pull you through to the other side.
With Naipias anthemic lyrics and positivity bursting through the bassline, guitars and punching drums - Lonely will be set on repeat as the song of 2020.
Naipia released their 2019 Anthem, 'Another' on the 29.11.19 - this gained radio play across BBC and multiple Indie Radios, Spotify Playlisting and a string of reviews, blogs, articles and press.
'Another' is written by lead singer George, about the darkest time in his life, which unknowingly, he had placed himself into over the space of several years.
The song explores how anyone has the ability to hit 'rock bottom' and seek comfort in those things to numb pain. It highlights that what once was an ‘easy fix’ can go on to have a detrimental effect on your health, physically and mentally.
The message 'it's okay not to be okay' has rung true with many, and created a dedicated following for those that seek messages of positivity and self-care in their music.
