Coming in hot off the back of her latest collaboration with British artist Corbin Shaw on an exclusive merch piece (“CHEESE CHIPS N BLOODY GRAVY”) and her second record breaking Boiler Room hosted by Charity Shop Sue celebrating IWD by welcoming exclusively women, trans and non-binary ravers (the first ever for the platform),  the unstoppable new-gen junglist Nia Archives shares her latest single “Unfinished Business”.

A light and airy lyrical letter to herself about a lover preoccupied by their past, this track marks the third single from the forthcoming debut album Silence Is Loud, joining recent tracks “Crowded Roomz” and “Silence Is Loud” to weave together the albums rich thematic tapestry around love, loneliness, the intense potential power of silence, relationships, family, navigating her 20s and more. To celebrate the release today, she shares the official Rory Wood directed video that sees Nia front and centre in a series of vignettes from a chip shop, to a pub, house party to a rave breaking the fourth wall and emotionally pleading her feelings to the camera.

Nia Archives has learned the rules of her sound, and is unafraid to break them, pushing jungle and herself into new, unchartered territories. Due for release on 12th April via HIJINXX/Island Records/Universal Music Canada, whilst very much replete with the exquisite jungle sound she does so well, on her forthcoming album Nia Archives is also doing something a little different and looking to make music for beyond the rave. Working with Ethan P. Flynn (the songwriter and producer known for his work with FKA twigs and David Byrne), Nia is intent that Silence Is Loud is taken in as a full body of work of something “more song-focussed, putting interesting sounds on jungle.”

Fresh off the back of an 8-date Australia and New Zealand Tour, A Quintessentially Junglist Summer bangers “Off Wiv Ya Headz” and “Bad Gyalz”, a JD Sports Christmas advert alongside Central Cee and Kano, gracing the December cover of DJ Mag, a sold out 10,000 ticket “UP YA ARCHIVES” takeover at Warehouse Project, a remix of Fred Again’s “leavemealone”, and the most recent cover of The FACE Magazine, Nia Archives is set up for world domination, placing herself firmly in the lineage of British dance music greats.
