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.
