NYXEN Drops New Track & Video ‘Insomnia’ + Touring Nationally In August

Sydney producer Nyxen has returned with her signature dark, wistful, and dreamy sound on the new single and video Insomnia, out now on Unknown Records. Insomnia is the next taste of her forthcoming extended release due out later this year, and is accompanied by the news of Nyxen’s sophomore national tour, which follows her sold out run earlier this year. 

“I’ve gone through episodes of insomnia throughout my life and over the past year it’s something that’s affected me quite a bit, so naturally I wanted to take that experience and write a song that explores the feeling sonically and vocally,” Nyxen explains. “I wanted to try and express the contrast of being super spacey and dazed, with more frustrated and aggressive tones instrumentally.”

“I’ve also been focused on this concept of retro furturism recently, and have tried to create music inspired by a 1980s vision of a Cyberpunk world.” 

“This world is gritty and dangerous with never ending cities and skyscrapers buzzing with hover cars. A dystopian world that never sees daylight and is illuminated by neon signs and billboards. A world of extremely advanced technology but decreased standard of living and increase in crime.”

“My goal is to sonically create a vision of that world within my instrumentals while lyrically expressing my own lived experiences, in hopes the listener will be transported there or perhaps share a vision of that place when they hear the song.”
