Los Angeles native Swt Valli Hi (Sweet Valley High) returns with her sultry new single Nirvana, out now on all streaming platforms.
The track is an ethereal and introspective jam, backed by a distinctive bassline, all wrapped up in Swt Valli Hi’s captivating and distinctively sultry vocals. It follows the success of her most recent single Telescope and her debut self-directed cinematic music video Over It. Speaking of the highly anticipated single, SVH says, “The music is sexy, it instantly took me to place of romance so I free-styled the melody and lyrics with the intention of giving people the empowerment to free themselves internally, and love the way they want to love.”
Described as a ‘designer for sound’, Swt Valli Hi’s music is a harmonious mix of soul and wild funk with a classic rock ‘n’ roll attitude. Striking vocals and deeply emotive sentiments drive a powerfully unique sound from the Nigerian-American artist. Born in L.A. and raised by a single father between California and Lagos, Nigeria, SVH promises a degree of fearless authenticity that captivates in a fresh and genuine way.
Formally signed to Warner Music, Swt Valli Hi parted ways to start an indie imprint with friends at the top of 2018 called Eighteen. “The best thing about being independent is having control over what you’re working on, who you’re working with and when you can give it to the world. I can’t stand politics, manipulation and greedy people jerking me and other artists around. It’s disheartening and tiresome. Let’s live, love and create,” says SVH.
Since the release of her noteworthy singles In Time, Needy and Threats in 2019, Swt Valli Hi is constantly raising the bar with her music. Consistently showcasing the intimacy of her sultry vocals that blend seamlessly with her raw and authentic lyrics, she has the ability to instantly captivate her listeners.
Growing up with her time split between Southern California and summers in Lagos, Nigeria, SVH’s father helped her develop her global view on life and taste of music, which would inadvertently shape her sound. Inspired by the likes of Donna Summer, Sade, Portishead, Queen Bey, Fela Kuti, Tame Impala and The Black Keys, the SVH sound is an all-encompassing, non-limiting musical embodiment of what’s new, what’s old, and what’s timeless.
