Previously known for their layered electronic jams, the New York-based band will be moving onto acoustic pastures new with their EP on Lo Bit Landscapes
The latest artists to land on the Brooklyn-via-Berlin Lo Bit Landscapes imprint is the New York based outfit, nihiti, returning with their new EP, 'Faced With Splendour' - produced by TJ Lipple of Aloha. A fairly surprising departure from their past psychedelic sound, the new EP presents an introduction of more acoustic elements, revealing nihiti's hidden expertise in simple songwriting. The release will be followed by a new full length LP due out in Spring 2012, which will see a return to their full electronic set up as they tour Europe and The US.
