“When I was around 10 years old, I had a great conflict: Go and study guitar or, start playing soccer team”, explains Tel Avivian musician, Niv Ast. Fortunately enough, he chose the guitar—and now we get to experience the sounds of this multi-talented musician.
It’s a subtle spookiness in the vocals that immediately grabs the ears and slowly but surely pulls you into the music. Niv’s music varies between quite a few genres. His song One Time has a funky Mediterranean beat that makes you want to move all over a dance floor, while the track I Don’t Care has a distinctly melancholic tone.
“All of my songs are about a certain feeling in a particular moment”—Niv succeeds in catching these moments in such an elegant manner.
You can look forward to some upcoming releases; a collaborative effort with producer Kalimist as well an EP of remixes Fearless Love Stories.
