“Appearances of calm are only the first moments of attraction for Niabi. A trip, yes, but towards happiness. A description of the first kiss, Well-being, Of discovery. It’s too good. Too much.”

Niabi is the music of Niabi Caldwell.
Inspired by shoegaze and ambient artists like Slowdive and Brian Eno, as well as female synth icons Delia Derbyshire, Trish Keenan and Dorit Chrysler, Niabi creates a kind of forest-dwelling dreampop that could share space with M83 and Bat for Lashes.

Niabi’s debut EP, Forest Fires, is composed of out-of body experiences that ebb and flow while bathing the listener in a hazy, diffuse light. It is a spiritual dismantling of the hardwired, urban vista, with each song plucking another part of the city by its foundation and casting it into the sea.

Niabi live in Brooklyn, NY, and loves of cats, Twin Peaks and Tumblr.
