Swedish-Indian artist Nadia Nair refuses to be defined by genre; however, she finds herself glowing in our radar, and we’re going to describe her new release as a solid and exciting new R&B single.
Nadia Nair vocals are immediate, strong and engaging on the new single See Things – released today. Fellow Swede – 3x Swedish Grammy-nominee rapper Mwuana also features, and where perhaps I’m usually a little reticent of rap interludes (especially with vocal effects) the deeper vocals pleasingly balances this track. The bass drop, sparkling synths, and catchy chorus create an irresistible head-nodding jam.
Released with a video Nadia is visually captivating and evokes Indian mystery as we see both Nadia and Mwuana arguing with their partners.
Nadia states: “See Things is about realizing things through real eyes. When we fall in love we see what we want to see and when we break our illusions shatter too“.
Nadia Nair is a new name for us, but she has been active behind the scenes writing for the likes of Skip Marley, SEEB and Steve Angello. Her previous releases have received widespread acclaim from various online publications, including The Independent, Clash, Hunger and The FADER.
Let’s hope Nadia Nair returns to this R&B style again and again.
I see big things for Nadia!
