Hailing from Portugal, Niki Moss is the musical guise of Miguel Vilhena, a multi-instrumentalist, producer, lead vocalist for the psych-rock band Savana and founder for the record label Pontiaq.
The playful, off-kilter and uber-catchy ‘Soylent Green’ was his opening introduction and now Moss has shared ‘There Must Be Something In The Water’; the second single lifted his debut album Gooey, penned for release in early 2019. It is an effervescent piece of luminescent psych-pop that is colorful, vibrant and fizzes with vitality. Skirting the border between psych and avant-pop, it storms off at breakneck speed with a whirlwind of frantic rhythms, racing synths, buzzing riffs and vivacious drums. ‘There Must Be Something In The Water’ is a four-minute excursion to a flashy, neon bright world of experimental pop that gets its hooks in nice and early, and doesn’t let go.
‘There Must Be Something In The Water’ indeed, tune in below.
