Nieah, 미루지마 (MRJM) Feat. Paul – K-SPOTLIGHT

It’s been a while since our last feature of the K-SPOTLIGHT that has focused on recommending an undiscovered artist or song. We’ve found a track that we love recently, and so thought to share it with our readers!

Our long-term followers will know about Nieah already, an independent R&B artist with a beautiful voice. We’ve interviewed and recommended her music before, and still keep up with her releases and activities. Nieah has had a steady output of singles this year, including ‘Of You’ which just missed out on being included on our main list of the Music Release Roundup for June 2018. We felt that recent songs were starting to become a little cluttered and over-complicated with the mixing, which didn’t do the vocals as much justice compared to past material.

 

However, Nieah has another song out this month! We thought that her collaboration with Paul on 미루지마 (MRJM) was excellent. This stripped back track written by Paul allowed Nieah’s voice to shine with all the subtleties she has to offer. We’ve always said that Nieah’s ability in phrasing of lines is wonderful and it is demonstrated to perfection here; she knows when to push notes powerfully or hold back effortlessly. She finishes phrases like a dancer extending their hands to end a movement, and her high notes are smooth against the gentle guitar accompaniment by ampoff. We also have male vocals coming in during the latter half of the song; having both voices together was a nice touch although we would have preferred some kind of harmonization. Jay Dope is back on mixing and mastering duties as usual, and we are glad that a good balance was achieved here.

 

‘미루지마 (MRJM)’ demonstrates another side to Nieah and shows that she can master a soothing atmosphere in addition to her darker material. We are replaying this song multiple times daily right now, so we highly recommend that you listen to it too! You can buy the track on iTunes!
