A futuristic take on 80s synth-pop, ‘Silence In Motion’ is driven by hazy reverberated vocals, thumping basslines, and organic percussion. Through a mesmerizing blend of new wave and glam rock, the second single off Nyxen’s upcoming album synthesizes Nyxen’s unique sound and further establishes her as an artist to watch this year. ‘Silence In Motion’ arrives on the heels of the project’s titular track ‘PXNK’ (punk).
Nyxen describes the track as “a fast paced journey into what it feels like to be an outsider. An introverted, over-thinker, idolizing the freedom and confidence they see in the people around them, wanting that for themselves.” Nyxen added, “‘Silence In Motion’ felt fitting as a name, the silence of erratic thoughts speeding through your mind, the silent movement of people you cross paths with and the effects of unspoken words as you move through time.”
Known for her intricate synth work and guitar-driven production, Nyxen has carved a unique space for herself at the intersection of dance, indie, and pop music. First emerging on the scene in 2015, Nyxen has used her revolutionary sound to amass millions of streams and garner a dedicated following. As one of Australia’s most revered multi-instrumentalists, Nyxen has had multiple songs added to Triple J rotation of early releases ‘Running’ and ‘In The City,’ and recent additions ‘Insomnia’ and ‘Red P Plates.’ A force within Australia’s music scene, Nyxen has sold out her own headline shows and supported the likes of Golden Features and Crooked Colours.
Exploring ‘80s influences and instrumentation for the creative direction of her anticipated debut album PXNK (punk), Nyxen continues to forge a unique, refined sound. “The direction of the album all started with ‘PXNK’, I had a name, a sound, and a vision for the body of work I wanted to put forward and it feels very fitting to guide the listener into the album the way I was guided into writing it,” Nyxen says about the album. Weaving deep, emotive electronic foundations with indie sensibilities and universally relatable lyrics, her music leaves its mark on her listeners with each and every release.
Nyxen invites you along for an emotional ride on ‘Silence In Motion,’ available on all streaming platforms on Friday, May 13th, with US tour dates coming in 2022.
