Nisa, the solo project of Brooklyn-based artist Nisa Lumaj is announcing a short run of East Coast dates for February 2023 and sharing a visualizer for the recently-released EP track, “Nothing”. The run of dates – which will be followed with a stop at SXSW – come in support of the four-track EP, Exaggerate which is out now via Hit the North Records. The EP, tipped at The New York Times, Pitchfork, NME, The Line of Best Fit, CLASH, FLOOD, Brooklyn Vegan, Secret Meeting, Talkhouse and more comes produced by Nate Amos (Water From Your Eyes, My Idea, Lily Konigsberg) and is available as a very limited edition sonic blue cassette.

The new collection chalks up Nisa’s third EP release in just over a year following last year’s Guilt Trip and Time To Plant Tears. Lumaj’s new project, Exaggerate was conceived in a liminal period, while she was bouncing between Los Angeles, London, and New York; as a result, there’s a journalistic intensity that seeps through it.

She’s now based in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, but was born and raised by Albanian immigrants in a neighborhood near Morningside Heights, after moving from The Bronx at age 10. Because her parents spoke English as a second language, she wasn’t exposed to American pop or rock music until she moved to Manhattan. As a byproduct of spending her teen years in the city’s most metropolitan borough, she found herself around a circle of musicians interested in more contemporary music than what she’d previously been exposed to at home although it was when she would later move to London for university that she began to absorb more indie-pop adjacent sounds.
