“Never meant to come near enough, but you drew me in.”

“Rise” by Nadine | Still in the inbox, and an artist from Switzerland who’s crossing the channel (not that it’s an easy trip, geographically). Born in Emmental (yes, where the cheese is from), Nadine moved to London in 2011 and has been performing there ever since. A bit cinematic, this, and apart from the production it’s her voice – a contrast to the rumbling; fragile and quivering yet punching through – that carries this through. “Rise” is her new single, and as the name suggests – perhaps because of it? – it floats as it goes, again punching through until it breaks free and goes up, up, up. It’s a bit of a transcendental experience, and I don’t think I’m exaggerating. Her EP of the same name drops soon. [NB] (Have things I should hear? Drop me a line here.)
