After a three-year break from playing gigs around the country, a challenging phase of reflecting and sitting with grief, both personally and creatively, she learned to face this process with the necessary patience. After taking time to regain her love and connection to music she has found a way of combining formative musical influences and lyricism to explore personal themes. The musician herself describes her debut record as inherently optimistic, a reconciliation with herself and her inner conflicts: «To me it feels like having taken a long and tiring hike through my own history returning to a warm home. A comforting feeling that brings me a bit closer to myself.» With the courage to embrace her own vulnerability she is taking the stage as an incredibly inventive and strong musician.
Nola Kin's journey continues with the release of her latest single "Green Sleeve". The song explores the persistence of patterns and deeply rooted beliefs, even in the face of sincere efforts to break free. It vividly conveys the feelings of powerlessness and despair experienced by those trapped within these patterns.
Soundwise, "Green Sleeve" is as complex as the profound relationship patterns it delves into. The song is carried by a drum machine and Nola Kin's harmonious vocals and despite its heavy topic it radiates hope and a sense of liberation through its sound.
Drawing inspiration from renowned artists such as Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt and Bon Iver, Nola Kin places singing at the core of her artistry, valuing emotions above all else. Her music authentically reflects her inner world, and the upcoming songs promise to be a captivating chapter in her creative journey.
"Green Sleeve" is the first single from Nola Kin's upcoming EP, set for release in spring 2024.
