new music: nadia nair’s latest ‘blow’ is a dancefloor-bound explosion #soundcheck

April 15, 2016

I can’t get enough of Nadia Nair’s unique sonic world. Tablas and 808s collide with strings and pianos beneath her rich voice. The latest track from the electro-soul singer “Blow” is an infectious blast of sound and style. It combines her penchant for haunting moods with an ebullient explosive chorus. The Stockholm-based singer-songwriter has yet to release her debut album, but from the few singles I’ve heard so far it’s definitely something to stay alert for.
