Niomí, a Pakistani-Irish artist, makes sure her music is meaningful and thoughtful at all times. With Pain Relief, she delivers an exceptional EP. Lead single With You perfectly illustrates the power of songwriting. Its simple yet ethereal orchestration, led by piano and cello, provides the perfect musical backdrop. Emotional vocals are layered throughout.
This EP is an invitation to self-acceptance but also to take back control in all areas of life, including love – as Niomí touches on the song With You. “I had a long-term relationship which was abusive. I couldn’t be myself and the beginning of this track reflects the subtle changes that started around that time. I stopped writing songs, and was questioning myself. The chorus acknowledges the person that was there trying to just be but couldn’t whilst I was with them”, she explains.
Niomí wrote something that needs to be listened to. The honesty and vulnerability that’s present in With You make it so moving. Check out the audio below!
