Every (indie)pop fan will find this new song by NIve (pronounced Nēve) quite rejuvenating, albeit oddly. “Tired” is a dramatic piece that the Los Angles, California-based singer/songwriter penned as an outcry for help in dealing with emotional, physical and mental exhaustion. It is also a personal anthem for dealing with his predicament — and maybe, by extension, the listener’s. The honesty and vulnerability behind the lyrics is only matched by NIve’s strong, stretched and silky vocals.
The musician, who prior to moving to the US, lived in both Seoul, South Korea and Gold Coast, Australia, is currently releasing music via 153 Records/ADA.
