Since linking up, LA duo Mike B. and Ken Nana, collectively known as MIKNNA, dropped two stunning songs together: “Ness” and “Trinity Ave.” Building up to the release of their first EP together, 50/50 (All Seasons), the duo have gained recognition for their blend of emotional lyrics and smooth electronic production with classic R&B tropes. The result is a riveting set of songs that speak volumes towards the talent that the pair have both individually and as a team.
While the EP still is a ways off, MIKNNA brings a new dimension to “Ness” with its alluring visuals. Like the song, the video blends the real with the surreal, flipping between shots of Mike B. and ethereal digital images. The visuals pulse with Ken’s beat and Mike’s vocals, taking viewers on a trip through the duo’s minds. “Ness” has all the trappings of an R&B music video, but spins itself more like a crazy cross with a science fiction film.
