Though also known as a photographer, Neeq Serene is an equally accomplished musician. One listen to the brooding majesty that is new single The Others is all the proof you need.

With a sultry, unique quality from the opening seconds, The Others is enthralling from start to finish. Trip-hop is a starting point for sure, but the cinematic soundscapes of Lisa Gerrard and a leisured approach to DNB add to the sense of the lyrics being a real emotional journey. Serene’s vocals smoulder, like a volcano under ice, hinting  at unknown danger under a seemingly calm exterior.

The Others can be streamed on Spotify or downloaded on Bandcamp. Head over to her Instagram account to find out more about Serene, her music, and her other artistic endeavours.
