Angst. Power Chords. Female Vocals. Know what you're thinking: Alanis Morissette. You're almost right. Welcome to Nadie, the latest female artist ready to throw around her strong vocals and heart wrenching lyrics.
With a punk-pop intro that would do Green Day proud, Nadie's voice soon launches into a rock chorus, inspired by the traumatic time following her dad's death and splitting up with her long-time boyfriend. Strikingly personal, she's basically asking the ex what the new lass is like in an Anastasia-style crooning way. The dodgy guitar solo between the soaring vocals adds a probably unwanted Spinal Tap moment, though.
B-side I Break Twice is an acoustic little number, less angsty and more sugary, again with the trademark cringy guitar bit and a lot of whinging. While some of us turn to a slushy romantic comedy and huge tub of ice cream, Nadie reaches for the microphone. Like I Used To is a catchy anthem for all you slightly bitter Bridget Jones types out there, though by the sounds of her anger she wouldn't take too kindly to that description.
