Fresh off the heels of releasing her number one Hype Machine single Who Asked You – neo-soul artist Nia Wyn keeps us on our toes bringing a double dose of new music with singles Atlantis / Ghosted. With the mythical dreams of escaping modern life problems in the vintage soul ballad Atlantis and the RnB-infused groove Ghosted about how relationships drift apart, they both capture two sides of Nia’s unique personality and voice as an artist. Speaking about the two tracks, Nia said:
I’m a big gamer and I got obsessed with the story of the Lost City of Atlantis through Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. I was researching Plato’s story and instead of fallen power, I was imagining this idyllic heavenly place you could run to with a lover to escape being deep into a bank overdraft, pressures from family and society and social media. The myth that Atlanteans could control things like weather and time is powerful in a world where we often feel helpless.
Ghosted is pretty different – I wrote this song after a friend drifted apart from me who I thought I’d built a strong relationship with. I think being ghosted is now a universal experience in some way – whether its friends or dates who drop off the face of the earth completely or only speak to you when things are going good in their life or they want something from you.
