Nina - We Are The Wild Ones (Aztec Records)
|Nina - We Are The Wild Ones|
Release Date: 25th November 2013
I hear a lot of pop these days, it's hard not to, and most of it offends for one reason alone; it lacks soul. Berliner Nina does not lack in this area despite the unashamedly poppy approach in this new single. 'We Are The Wild Ones' fuses Ladyhawke, Goldfrapp, Mary At Midnight, Bat For Lashes and then delivers with the sass of Robyn and the whimsy of a hundred 80s pop ballads. The single also includes the slightly punchier and more 'Now That's What I Call Music' friendly 'Waste Of Love' that has a smidge of Lana Del Rey about it. Nina is not breaking down any huge artistic boundaries here but I'm glad she's creating top quality pop music with soul and heart. And she pisses all over Ke$ha.
