Review - Nina Nesbitt - Peroxide
We first wrote about Nina Nesbitt quite some time ago, and unfortunately we just haven’t gotten around to featuring her again. In the year (plus) since we’ve mentioned the British singer songwriter, she’s been busy releasing EPs, singles, and touring with the likes of Ed Sheeran and Example. How’d she get those? Well, she just happened to meet them, and when they gave her a listen, they were instantly sold.
A pretty promising start, isn’t that?
‘Peroxide’ is Nina’s first full length, which is surprising, as she’s been doing this now for a few years, and has several EPs to her name. The 19 year old is clearly a hard worker, as the deluxe edition features 20 recordings (and again, think of all the time she spent touring and releasing EPs). What may be most shocking isn’t the amount of music she puts out, but the consistent quality.
Her debut is everything it needs to be: she’s funny, she’s sweet, she’s heartbroken and she’s in love. Nina is working the Taylor Swift character and sound, but manages to separate herself as well, playing up the blonde angle even more (hence the name of the album).
While she’s not necessarily a top 40-bound artist (she’s managed a few on her own in the UK), this is a slow-burner, and one which could release many a single. If I were her label head, I’d give this thing eight singles. They might not be radio smashes, but they could make this CD live for a long time and sell quite a few copies. Everything on it is good, and no matter how many songs it takes, she’s going to find her way into your heart.
Listen to: “The People”, “Stay Out”, “Selfies”, “Mr. C”
