néomí Shares New Single ‘skipping stone’

Surinamese/Dutch folk-pop singer-songwriter néomí has just shared her brand new single skipping stone, a captivating indie-folk/acoustic song out now via [PIAS] Recordings Holland.  
Taken from her upcoming sophomore EP After, which is set for release on April 14th, skipping stone is a relatable song about being in love with someone that is going through a difficult time and feeling like they don't let you in, making you feel insecure about the love you have. This personal storytelling is wrapped around an atmospheric production that blends néomí's warm and heartfelt voice with dreamy, somewhat euphoric production, that creates a wonderfully broad and vivid experience. Apart from her vocals, I am particularly fond of the intricate guitar plucks throughout which are seamlessly intertwined with lush percussive elements and airy atmospheric elements that make this quite a memorable and enthralling listening experience perfect for a reflective day home alone. Check it out below!



Speaking about skipping stone, néomí said, 
I remember myself writing this with my dear friend Jesse Koch, while I had just fallen in love with someone. That someone was going through a difficult time, and in those moments of our relationship I felt like a skipping stone: picked up and thrown over the water, as if I was nothing to him. When I was younger my Dad and I would go down to the river in France to find those flat stones and he would try to teach me how to skip them over the water. I always got frustrated doing it and it’s the image that came to my mind when writing this song. I felt so insecure, not about me or my lover individually but the love we had. I couldn't understand why he wouldn't allow me to let me in. It felt unfair because I was letting him in, and he just threw me away, like I was his skipping stone to sink somewhere in the lake.
