Serving as an upbeat, pop-tinged crossover collaboration alongside April Bender, “I Ain’t Going Home” is an empowering tune that gives listeners a taste of what’s to come from their forthcoming Field Trip EP.
“‘I Ain’t Going Home’ tells the story of a strong and independent person who doesn’t need any more games in his/her life”, Niiko x SWAE explains. “This is a song about realization: realizing that you are so much better than the person who has been pursuing you or trying to mess with your heart. Every first love or relationship comes with drama, and this song is about overcoming the bullshit to the point where you can make your own decisions.”
“We had been wanting to work with April since we heard her song ‘Sunrise’ with ARTY. At the very end of 2019, before quarantine, we reached out to some of our favorite singer-songwriters and were overwhelmed when April sent us the topline for ‘I Ain’t Going Home’. Both the vocal performance and the songwriting were so strong that producing the rest of the track was a walk in the park. When we finished up the production, we knew we had an anthem on our hands. We’ve had a ton of fun ending our live streams and pre-COVID sets with this feel-good banger!”
