After living through years of excess and infatuation, it’s all too fitting that Nikki’s Wives should find inspiration for their debut EP “For E*V*E*R” in the form of a powerful obsession. Locking themselves away on a month-long creative binge, the Toronto alt pop group has resurfaced with their first six songs. The new tracks deconstruct difficult emotions like jealousy and lust, while drenching them in seductive synths and high gloss pop. Nikki’s Wives’ isolation while crafting the new music shaped a collection of songs that disguise their depth as instant gratification but reveal a deeper meaning after the high wears off. Mixed by Matty Green (The Weeknd, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran) and produced by Alastair Sims (Walk Off The Earth, Rush, Three Days Grace), “For E*V*E*R” is a pop-inspired experiment featuring Nikki Whitehead’s smoky vocal style floating over vintage synths and faux brass.
Nikki’s Wives is Nikki Whitehead (vocals), Dylan Lauzon (guitar/keyboards) and Nate Baylor (drums). Although “For E*V*E*R” is the group’s debut release, they are no strangers to the recording process. Starting her career as a solo artist, Nikki has been in and out of studios since she was 12 years old. After struggling for years to find collaborators who shared her aesthetic vision, Nikki found a creative home with Dylan and Nate. The trio instantly fed off each other’s creative energies and decided to redefine the project to reflect this radiant spirit, marrying three talents to create Nikki’s Wives.
