Gearing up for the release of their self-titled EP on October 21, NIKOS are dropping the provocative pop track “Illusions” exclusively via Under The Gun Review. Dark enough to make you bang your head, yet catchy enough to stick with you for hours to come, NIKOS are creating a new brand of aggressive, driven pop music.

The band is out on the High School Nation tour this Fall with Drake Bell (yes, the guy from Drake & Josh), Jacob Latimore, and others. Catch this act now before the record drops and an inevitable explosion of popularity occurs. Singer Nikos Klimentos had this to say about the new track, “Illusions”:

“’Illusions’ is a very personal track on this EP. It was written during a very heartbreaking point in time for me. Most artists have that one bittersweet love song- however, this piece has an optimistic perspective and a hopeful undertone. The chorus plays “You’re the only thing I wanted but still I’m here with illusions of devotion. I won’t give up.” It was a darker time but I wasn’t ready to cave in. Without knowledge of what was coming next in my life, I wrote this song in confidence of something great impending. Strength and hope got me through my heavy heart and that is the message in ‘Illusions.’ Never give up on love.”
