London-based R&B/soul singer, songwriter and producer Niké Jemiyo has just unveiled the music video for her new single, "Dive", which is also the lead single taken from her forthcoming Hearts Grow EP scheduled for release on March 16th.
Directed by Efe Andre (Reignwolf, Rachel Kerr), the visuals portray the raw emotion and breadth of Niké Jemiyo’s orchestral-led ballad. The video for "Dive", shot on location at an ocean front, not only further opens up the song's evocative feel and Jemiyo's haunting vocals, but also brings to life the struggle portrayed in the song lyrics, taking its cue from John Coltrane's iconic Blue Train album cover.
In regards to the single, Niké Jemiyo explains:
"I wrote this song as a sign of hope after much confusion and heartbreak. It's a fierce call to take a risk, step into the uncertainty of the deep. Whether it's giving a relationship another chance or taking a risk with your dream, it beckons you to step out even when you're afraid, because you know that what lies ahead is too special to ignore."Watch the music video for "Dive" below.
