Nia Archives melds jungle, breakbeats, dub and reggae in new single ‘Forbidden Feelingz’

Nia Archives returns with her new single ‘Forbidden Feelingz.’ The first single since the release of her debut EP ‘Headz Gone West’ earlier this year including her break out single Sober Feels,’ this latest track is a song about an internal conflict she had been facing, blocking her own healing by refusing herself to allow her to feel her emotions.

An old skool jungle and 90s breakbeat-inspired track with a reggae/dub style intro, Nia also makes a tribute to her Grandma Liz with a snippet of a Colombo talking from her favorite 70s murder detective series. The video dropping alongside sees her collaborate with Delphino once again in a fast-paced, B&W epic that chases Nia through London echoing the sentiment of the track, running from her feelings. 

Speaking on the video, Delphino says: “This was a really special and heartfelt project for both me and Nia. After she told us that she wanted to make something legendary, we knew that it was time to dig deep and search inside… The goal was to make something that would be nostalgic at any point in time. No matter if you watched it now or in years to come. Our aim was to create something that complimented the synergy between the vocals and instrumental.

For the majority of scenes in the video we cut out loads and loads of frames and mashed them together with stop motion. This was an idea that we thought would best suit this video, as we wanted to try this for ages. As we progress with our art, we will strive to make pieces that really resonate with the authentic part of ourselves.”
