Nique Star - the girl who breaks hearts - Stereo Stickman

Nique Star the girl who breaks hearts


Creative freedom takes the wheel, as warped sound-design unites distorted guitars and heavy rhythm and bass – Nique Star demands attention well, for the girl who breaks hearts.

Balancing whispered rap vocals with a relentless guitar riff and mellow marching rhythm, the track showcases a back and forth between cleanly mixes verses and decidedly auto-tuned and dissonant surrounding moments. In one instance the release offers a simple groove and story, and in the next Nique Star drops the rhythm and adopts a mind-bending sense of outcry in relaying the emotional grit and defiance of this experience.

Coming in at close to four minutes, the girl who breaks hearts fearlessly expresses both the story and feelings related to its title, with a track that’s as unsettling and haunting as it is honest and creatively distinct.

It’s not an easy listen, but the artistic fusion of genres and Nique’s own clear commitment to the artform is undeniable, and that repetitive guitar riff and the spoken resolve to the hook consistently maintain a sense of character and a recognisable thread of identity throughout the track.

It will be interesting to hear where else the music takes an unpredictable and engaging artist like Nique Star in the coming months.
