Premiere: NIK NAVY shares tender, James Blake-esque single, Keep You Safe

Following on from the success of Colour Me, this is the second single from his forthcoming debut EP due next year.

A few months back we met NIK NAVY, a Melbourne-based musician who with his soothing debut single Colour Me, was offering a glimpse of emotive light dedicated to the hardships of queer Australians in the time post-same-sex marriage plebiscite. Now he's back, further strengthening the comparisons to James Blake and SOHN with another tender single, Keep You Safe. Joining Colour Me on his debut EP, expected sometime next year, Keep You Safe is a down-tempo moment of beauty from a musician who is quickly becoming one of Australia's most moving, uniting this minimalist, chord-backed instrumental with a dreamy falsetto that floats over the top. "When you care about someone, you want them to know that whenever anything goes wrong; you’ll be there for them and that they can confide in you," he says on the single and its creation. "I try to make all of my music sound like one big sonic hug that just envelopes every bit of you, so this just seemed like the perfect combination."

Dive into the single below, and make sure you keep an eye on the quickly-rising Melbourne musician as he charms us time and time again.
