EFKA releases the music video for Narimen, the first single from his upcoming debut solo EP Hôtel Cortez. Featuring Nadro, Narimen is a captivating, piano-driven electro-pop song filled with warm, brooding synths and silken vocals.
The music video reflects the mood as EFKA walks through the deserted city and subway at night. The only thing accompanying him are his thoughts and the twinkling lights. It captures his nostalgic mood as he thinks back to childhood trauma and how it could be overcomed.
Narimen is a smoothly executed song with an emotional spectrum enhanced by beautiful harmonies and poignant lyrics. The ticking clock is interspersed throughout the song and shown in the visuals, a clever trick to keep us from drifting off into the music entirely and reminding us EFKA has a story to tell.
“Narimen is a celebration of life, a reminder that even your darkest times can be overcome if you give yourself the chance to do so.” – EFKA
The title of the 6 track EP, Hôtel Cortez, is inspired by American Horror Story, but with the songs reflecting growth, love, and death. The young Swiss singer-songwriter formerly known as Fabio Koch, shines with the deeply personal Narimen and we are excited to see what the rest of the EP will reveal.
I think I’ve found my way home now
