Nina Nesbitt released new EP and returns to Newcastle
Artists constantly change their genre of music through time with each album they produce, bettering their sound until they find one that fits them. A great example of this is Taylor Swift. In 2006 she was making country music from her bedroom with just her mind and her guitar. Now she is an international pop star working with huge producers in New York City. Another artist who has recently released an EP who could be said to be following in Swift’s footsteps is Scottish signer/songwriter Nina Nesbitt.
Nina recently released an EP of three brand new songs ready for the later release of her album. The new music sounds honest, as though the lyrics have came from her heart rather than her head.
The first song titled Chewing Gum, which is the first single from her upcoming album, is a song about the girl’s part-time lover knowing that he will never permanently have her.
Chewing Gum is a clever metaphor because she only wants him “until the flavour’s gone”.
The song is an upbeat tune with clever lyrics showing Nina’s raw talent.
The second track from the EP is titled Take Me To Heaven. The song is a contrast from the first, it is downbeat with a story of love and romance, but not too cheesy.
The third is titled Masquerade. This is a demo track and so sounds more acoustic compared to the two other complete and edited tracks. Masquerade is another metaphorical title. It describes a relationship where she does not really know her partner as he is hiding behind a mask.
The song is lyrically flawless with lines such as “now there’s a foreign taste on his tongue, I’m trying to translate what we’ve become..”.
This EP clearly shows she has definitely found her sound, as it is so different from any other EP she has put out and far different even from her first album, Peroxide, which was just released in 2014.
The EP does not feel watered down in anyway, but it sounds like she has managed to turn her feelings into music which is all any artist can hope to do.
Nina will be performing in Newcastle at the o2 Academy on Friday 6 May 2016 at 6:30pm. She has performed here several times before with all shows sold out.
Tickets are available from Ticketmaster and the o2 Academy website.
Nina’s new sound has done her well with her new EP, lets see if her album and tour can follow on from it as well.
