The new single from Brighton’s Naipia is a pure indie pop gem filled with yearning and emotion. ‘Lonely’ is undoubtably classic anthemic indie rock that is differentiated by its thoughtful structure and inherent stadium-filling presence.
Celestial choruses, melodies, thoughtful lyrics and driving guitars all combine to make this a fantastic debut.

The band’s name is a nod to singer/songwriter George Dewhurst’s sojourn in Napier, New Zealand which inspired him to form Naipia along with with drummer Matt Leppenwell and bassist Harry Dewhurst.
