VIDEO PREMIERE: Neko 'Serious'

From RNZ Music, 9:59 am on 25 September 2020

RNZ Music is stoked to present the new single and video from emerging R&B artist NEKO. 'Serious' is the debut single from the 18-year-old, who's worked with the likes of Troy Kingi and Chruch & AP.

Auckland born singer Neko has featured on NZ hip-hop duo Church & AP’s critically acclaimed tracks ‘War Outside’ and ‘Hello Hello’, performing with them at Six60's sold-out Western Springs show earlier this year.

Neko's also featured on Kiwi neo-soul singer Noah Slee’s ‘Soulflower’, and most recently, on Troy Kingi’s track ‘First Take Strut’, from his latest album The Ghost of Freddie Caesar.

She’s now ready to step into the spotlight on her own with her debut single ‘Serious’. Co-written by Wells* and High Hoops, ‘Serious’ is a modern R&B track fused with nostalgic soul.

The video was filmed at Auckland’s Muriwai Beach in just a couple of takes by Connor Pritchard, who's worked with the likes of Melodownz, SWIDT, Vayne and JessB.
