New Music: Naia Lika

Hailing from America is Naia Lika, who has already become one of our favourite pop discoveries of the month.

Inspired by artists as diverse as Remi Wolf, Dua Lipa, Leon Bridges and YEBBA, Lika creates a refreshingly eccentric style of pop – as you’ll experience when you press play on her debut single, ‘Gas Station Bouquet’.

The song treats listeners to a captivating mix of soul, funky R&B and pop. Playful, charming and melodically memorable, the track serves as an impressive introduction to Lika.

“Creating the song was an impactful moment for me. I had just experienced one of the toughest years of my life and it was such a valuable opportunity to actually sit down and write about something positive in my life amidst all the negativity swarming my mind. I don’t think I take enough time to appreciate what I have in my life.”

Fun fact: Lika’s great-grandfather sang alongside legends as iconic as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop and Sammy Davis Jr.
