NIIKA (FKA Good at Bad), conceived and fronted by Russian-born Chicago native Nika Nemirovsky (guitar and voice), is a genre-bending, continent-crossing, soft explosion of intimate indie, soul, and dirty pop. Nika wrote and recorded much of her music in Australia, but is currently holding a close focus on the blossoming creativity of her Chicago ensemble. The live show is a lush bath of ardent vocal performance, cradling harmonies, and seamless groove changes, which align like aural punctuation around Nika's vivid storytelling and deep, organic vulnerability.

"Nemirovsky makes big music from a small space. From her hands, even only guitar and voice can perform the most mosaic duet, waltzing back and forth with one another in a dance that conveys not only playful novelty, but also an honest and undeniable heartache."

-Elijah Fosl, Staff Contributor at "The Le Sigh"

music video premier at The Le Sigh: 
"The video climaxes with an awe-striking sequence of body-painting that solidifies it as a statement that reflects exactly what defines Nemirovsky’s writing: clean, colorful, and melancholy."
