Niecy Blues, the South Carolina singer and producer, invites listeners on a transcendent journey through themes of grief, self-acceptance, lineage, ritual, and emotional vulnerability in their music. In their debut release Exit Simulation, Niecy Blues weaves ghostly harmonies of downtempo gospel into reverberating looped vocal improvisations, creating an album that unfolds with renewed richness in each passing song.
“Recorded in her current home of Charleston, she characterises the album’s mood in terms both reflective and raw: an exploration of things suppressed, foundations beginning to crack, “talking myself off a ledge.”” - The Line of Best Fit
The music resonates with gentle lullabies, heuristic pop hooks, and world-class R&B melody, showcasing a magnetic softness at its core that is simultaneously hypnotizing, comforting, and haunting. Niecy Blues's voice navigates slowly through beautiful melodies, exploring the hidden nooks and crannies of the mind and spirit fearlessly, unearthing a musical landscape that is as captivating as it is explorative.
