Alright, I have to confess that I have fallen completely in love with Nicole Atkins. Not only does this funky, downtown tempo get you on your feet but her silky voice pairs perfectly with the deep bass apparent throughout her new single Girl You Look Amazing. Set to release a new album Slow Phaser on April 28th via her own label Oh Mercy!, this energetic singer partnered with some heavy-hitters in the music industry.
Collaborating with drumming/producing visionary Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds) who helped write three of the songs and producer Tore Johansson, Atkins said that the song came to her in a dream. “I wanted to make something that no one’s ever heard before,” she explains, “including myself.” Atkins goes on to describe Slow Phaser as “large but not cluttered” and I can’t deny that her “neon noir tour de force of hi-def late-night pop” spins you round and makes you dance.
I am truly looking forward to hearing the rest of the album on April 28th, but until then, this quirky and charming video of ‘Girl You Look Amazing’ will just have to suffice.
