Hiki - Closer (Full-Length Album - 2017) - Bandcamp Stream

Foto de Hiki.

Hiki (from 光, 光る - 'light, shining') is an shoegaze/dream pop project with a mellow ambience. Created suddenly on May 23, 2014, by B.M. - all instruments & vocals (Blurry Lights, Skyforest, A Light in the Dark, Traceline) as a result of experiments with the sounds. It was just one song 'Every Day is the Same' and it was decided to expand it in a separate full project. First release was kinda sad, but now Hiki has quite positive sound with a lot of nostalgic feelings.

Closer is the 6th album. Written and recorded during 2016 and early 2017. This album is a bit 'heavier' than the previous albums - almost all tracks have distorted guitars, there are almost no acoustic songs and a couple of blackgaze elements are present. Also, this time the artwork of the album is an original drawing made specifically for this album!

Closer was released in February 6, 2017. Featuring 6 songs + remix of one of the songs. Albums guests - Arina Fox providing additional vocals on three songs and Nyoko, making a remix for this album. There will be one song in russian language with lyrics by Arina Fox. The album artwork is an original artwork drawn specifically for this album by a very talented artist called mB0sco. Total time is about 23 minutes. There will be CDR and tape like Stargaze. Free download at
