Top Tracks: Niko – Myself

It’s great to find something new, but let it be said that there is certainly a special charm to be found in the familiar. After all, that’s how most of us discover new music; we hear something we like and say “I want more!”. Case in point the new track from Dutch band Niko is such an inviting amalgamation of elements from songs and artists that I adore. ‘Myself’, already a brilliant critique of the break-down of our self-centred society, also boasts a main riff reminiscent of Rush’s ‘Limelight’, a soaring solo akin to that found in The Only Ones’ ‘Another Girl Another Planet’, and vocals that are sure to win over fans of classic indie. What’s more impressive is that this potent patchwork proves to be greater than the sum of its parts, injecting much of their own character into the infectious melodies.
