They recently released a video for their single, “Breaking Up”, which you can check out below. Tomorrow (August 10), the band will be at The Rivoli, so be sure to check out their socials for more information on that! Canadian Beats own Emily Dunlop will be there, so stay tuned!

Find out more about Nikki’s Wives in our Five Questions With segment, they are a certainly a band to keep an eye on.

Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

Hey everyone! I’m Nikki and I’m the lead singer of the band “Nikki’s Wives”. We’ve been a band for just under 3 years now and have been able to tour all over North America. We’re all from different parts of Canada but recently made our home base Nashville, TN.

Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.

The three of us all come from different musical backgrounds, so our songwriting is a reflection of that. We try to write the best possible song, no matter the genre or style, then all work together to turn it into a Nikki’s Wives song. Naturally, we lean towards alternative rock or pop, which is what I would define our sound as.

Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?

Our next show is in Toronto on August 10th at the Rivoli. Dave Monks of Tokyo Police Club will be DJ’ing, and we’re gonna have free food and drinks for everyone that shows up. So make sure to check out our socials (@nikkiswives) for more info on that.

Our live show is arguably the best part of our band. The connection we share on stage is electric.

If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?

My favourite song we have out right now is called “Neon Lights”. It’s a sultry song about a stripper running away from home and claiming her throne.

Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?

There are wayyy to many Canadian artists killing it out there, so I’m gonna give you my top 3.

  1. I’m currently obsessed with grandson. How he combines rock and electronic elements is super rad.
  2. Jessie Reyez is always a favourite. She’s Canada’s resident bad bitch. (Next to Shania, of course.)
  3. We’re really close with the boys in Loud Luxury. Last year we released a song with them under Tiesto’s label. So it’s been kind of surreal watching their career skyrocket this year.
