Nier Automata’s new lofi album brings some chill beats to the apocolypse

Nier Automata’s soundtrack bangs. No ifs, no buts. Quietly beautiful and eerie all at once, every song perfectly encapsulates what makes the game’s bleak apocalyptic landscape so mesmerising. So I was very excited when I woke up this morning to find a collection of lofi remixes have dropped on Spotify. They also bang.

The album comes courtesy of Curaga Records, who’ve previously thrown together some neat lofi collections for Skyrim, Genshin Impact and Deltarune. It features a variety of artists like Lofi Lia (who’s also behind some fantastic Animal Crossing remixes), Collosia and popular music producer Alex Moukala. There are 10 tracks in all, with songs like City Ruins and Song of Ancients being given the crackly downtempo makeover. While my all-time favourite song Memories of Dust has been left out this time, other bangers like Amusement Park and Weight of the World make up for the oversight.
