Nia Archives has shared a new single ‘Crowded Roomz’, inspired by feelings of loneliness and social anxiety on tour.

Written following a festival last Summer, Archives shared that ‘Crowded Roomz’ was inspired by the feeling of “constantly surrounded by people, but not necessarily those you can be yourself around.”

The track features Nia Archives’ upbeat, soulful tone over fast jungle drums and melancholy introspective lyrics.

“I feel so lonely, especially in crowded rooms/ It’s a facade, my persona is my costume/ No one to turn to, they don’t understand my blues” the lyrics detail.

The junglist star took to Instagram to thank co-writer Ethan P. Flynn for allowing her the space to be vulnerable: “Tha music i make is so fucking raw n exposing but it is 100% authentic 2 me n tha only true way i’ve found 2 express myself.”

Dancing from her bedroom, to the tube, to parties and back — the music video, directed by Nicolee Tsin, follows Archives in a single shot – featuring cameos from Maverick Sabre, Corbin Shaw, and Intranet Girl.

‘Crowded Roomz’ follows last summer’s singles “Off Wiv Ya Headz,” “Bad Gyalz” and March EP ‘Sunrise Bang Ur Head Against Tha Wall.’

Coming off the back of her ‘A Quintessentially Junglist Summer’ tour, the former Mixmag cover star received a nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Act at the MOBO Awards, alongside Aluna, PinkPantheress, Shygirl, TSHA, and Salute.

Archives is currently touring in Australia and New Zealand throughout January and February.
