AN artist who has grown up before our very eyes, Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt has come a long way since the release of her debut album Peroxide back in 2014. Written from a very wide-eyed and youthful perspective, it was a record characterised by heartfelt lyrics and catchy folk-inflected pop songs; growing up, young love and heartbreak.
Three years later though and Nesbitt has re-emerged with an entirely new image and sound; a transformation confirmed by the release of ‘The Moments I’m Missing’ earlier this summer. Ditching the twee acoustic pop of yesteryear in favour of a minimal electronic sound, the track has now amassed up to 1.7 million streams on Spotify and features guest vocals from Goody Grace; a surprising shift that not only indicates a bold new direction for the singer but has also ramped up interest in her forthcoming second album.
Now accompanied by a stirring new video, Nesbitt explores her own personal journey from childhood to to her music career to her first love; pairing her introspective and autobiographical lyrics with nostalgic clips from her past. Hugely atmospheric and strikingly intimate, it’s an intriguing insight into what’s to come from the singer.
