Korean-American singer-songwriter, NIve releases two single project ‘bandages’

NIve’s first digital single album ‘bandages’ – out last August 12th. Promoting with ‘hybrid pop,’ NIve’s full-scale entry into the Korean market – A true “musician’s musician” – NIve’s single album ‘bandages’ is a message of heartbreak and healing!

According to a statement by 153 Entertainment, “The single album ‘bandages’ is about the journey of heartbreak and the healing process that comes along with it. Indicating the start of his full-fledged music activities in Korea after his debut single back in April, NIve is ushering in a new era of ‘hybrid pop’ with his music and this release.”

This will mark NIve’s first comeback since his debut Korean single “Like a Fool” back in April, which was a song released in collaboration with Sam Kim.

The single album ‘bandages’ will consist of two songs – the lead single ‘how do i’ and follow-up song ‘new light.’

NIve made his first impression with the general public as a talented contestant in 2014 through the national hit TV program “Superstar K6,” where he placed in the Top 9 under his English name “Brian Park.”

In 2018, NIve debuted in the United States with his first single “Getaway,” in collaboration with singer-songwriter JMSN and consistently released additional English singles until his debut in Korea.

Before his debut in Korea, NIve was already actively involved in the music industry as a composer, producer, and songwriter. He has written & composed songs for some of Korea’s top artists, such as “Beautiful Goodbye” by CHEN of EXO, “Groove” by EXO, “When it Rains” by Jeong Sewoon, “When I Tell You Goodbye” by HYNN, and many more.

NIve has emerged as a “musician’s musician” with his unprecedented all-around composing, songwriting, and producing skills. Much attention is being placed around what type of music NIve will present next with his single album ‘bandages’.
