Here to remind us that music is not just an audible experience, Nadiune make melodies that transcend acoustics. Their debut album Oh My is a collection of sophisticated modern pop songs that resonate in the gaps, the space between deadlines and timelines. More akin to poetry set to music, Nadine is all about exploring feeling. Whilst most poets revel in the personal, Nadine's process is collaborative whose core is singer Nadia Hulett (part of the loose collective Phantom Posse) and Julian Fader and Carlos Hernandez (both of Ava Luna).
The trio's practice is marked by their commitment to playfulness, curiosity, and fluidity. Nadine's songs have one foot standing firm in pop, but ebb and flow with exploration and experiment. Polyphonic melodies swing and gambol, instrumental layers take generous flourishes and unexpected turns with an ear to the wondrous and occasionally weird, crafting jazz-tinged lounge-pop all held together by Hulett's characteristic vocals, strong with a sincerity and gentleness that holds the listener.
Album highlights include first single "Ultra Pink" a light-hearted song about knowing you can do something before you do it and resisting the boxes people like to put us in, and "Not My Kinda Movie" which reflects on the nature of desire and our current entry points for connection on social media in this unique time. Another song, "Pews," places its reverie on the moral influences of a childhood spent in the church, the secrets around dying and the shattering awe of loving.
