Korean dream-pop artist nijuu has shared a new single, ‘나에게로 Come To Me’. It’s taken from her upcoming EP nijuu in the forest, which will follow last year’s nijuu in the sea – one of our favorite EPs of 2020. Check it out below and scroll down for the EP’s cover art.
Talking about the themes of the new EP, nijuu explained in a press release: “The key theme on nijuu in the forest is about ‘growth’ and about the journey to find a new place where I could learn more and be more independent. nijuu in the sea was about a little girl who just got separated from home, learning to find the way out of the darkness. If nijuu in the sea was like a little bird who just broke out from the egg then nijuu in the forest is about the little bird trying to learn how to fly and move its wings. Like learning to have more maturity and awareness (mentally, physically) and to be a better person.”
Of the inspiration behind ‘나에게로 Come To Me’, nijuu added: “I was thinking about – who am I? I was questioning myself again and again. And always I thought I’m no one. I’m not special. I’m nothing. In 2018, I was walking on an uphill road, I saw the sunset and I felt like the light told me ‘come to Me, please come to me. You are not gonna be staying in the dark. If you feel nothing, that means you could be anything’ and right after I went back home and wrote the song.”
