Flaunt Premiere | Nikita Bassi "Satin"

by Hannah Jackson

London-based singer Nikita Bassi’s silky vocals match her brand new single. Flaunt is pleased to premiere Bassi’s peach-toned video for “Satin,” an ode to a sweet naïveté about the complexity of love. The video perfectly complements the charming, nostalgic song, integrating imagery of flowers, dancers and, of course, satin.

Co-produced by Cores, who has worked alongside Solange, The Streets, and Gorgon City, the two worked to seamlessly blend the track’s soft sound with harder beats and a Punjabi sound—a nod to Bassi’s Indian heritage.

“‘Satin’ was written at a time when I was trying to write love songs but had never really been in love. I was younger and had a Disney-esque idea in my head of what it would feel like. It’s funny now I’ve grown up and learnt that love is so much more complex (and beautiful) than that. I initially self-produced the track as an idea and didn’t revisit it for a while, but then I met Cores who somehow took that whole dreamy vision and planted it into the song,” Bassi said of her debut single.
