Experimental artist, Neeq Serene, introduces the first single, 'The Others' from her electronic solo project.
Neeq combines haunting vocal layers with dark synthesizers and progressive drum-beats, creating a melancholic and introspective soundscape that crosses over genres of trip-hop, IDM and gothic neo-folk.
UK born and Kashmiri by origin, Neeq has been a writer since her early teens, particularly interested in exploring themes of identity, culture and the dimensions of existence. 2019 saw the launch of PINERO|SERENE, a dream-pop song-writing collaboration alongside bass player, Cheryl Pinero, with the first single, ‘Take My Soul’ premiered in Clash Magazine.
In this new sonic chapter, Neeq reveals a self-reflective journey through minimal, electronic music and deep lyricism, drawing on influences such as Radiohead, Unkle, Portishead and Bjork.
