Niiko x SWAE Drop Extremely enjoyable new observe “I am not going house” with April Bender
Sometimes all you need for the weekend is just the right track to get you in the perfect mood, and “I’m Not Going Home” by Niiko x SWAE is just that track for this week.
Incredibly fun, incredibly upbeat, instantly catchy and memorable. “I Ain’t Going Home” feels like an effortless pop smash that combines energetic synthesizers and rhythm with April Bender’s perfectly coordinated vocals. Beyond the production, the song is a hymn for everyone who is fed up with playing games and wants something more important in their life.
“‘I’m not going home’ tells the story of a strong and independent person who no longer needs games in their life,” explains Niiko x SWAE. “This is a song about achieving: realizing that you are so much better than the person who stalked you or tried to play with your heart. Every first love or relationship is tied to drama, and this song is about getting past the bullshit enough to allow you to make your own decisions. “
The duo continues: “We have always wanted to work with April since we heard their song ‘Sunrise’ with ARTY. In late 2019, before the quarantine, we reached out to some of our favorite singer-songwriters and were overwhelmed when April sent us the topline for “I’m not going home.” Both the vocal performance and the songwriting were so strong that producing the rest of the track was a walk in the park. When we finished production, we knew we had an anthem in our hands. We had a lot of fun ending our livestreams and pre-COVID sets with this feel-good banger! “
