Tune in and turn up
88rising / Ashley Armitage

Following the release of “Midsummer Madness” featuring Joji, Rich Brian, and Higher Brothers, and “Let It Go” with Higher Brothers and BlocBoy JB, 88rising return with another track from their anticipated crew album, here courtesy of Indonesian singer-songwriter/producer, NIKI. “Warpaint” ultimately serves as a pop-heavy anthem that is primed for radio play.

The official music video directed by Robin & Cako is featured below, and it explores NIKI’s Indonesian roots and female empowerment throughout, as the visuals showcase a journey through jungles to mythical places encountering obstacles and characters that lead towards discovery.

After enjoying the infectious tune, be sure to leave us your thoughts on the latest from 88rising in the comment section.

Earlier this month NIKI dropped off the official music video for “Spell,” which you can watch underneath, followed by 88rising’s other previous releases. Also, you can catch the singer-songwriter on tour with Halsey later this summer.
