Blessed by a voice dripping with shiver-inducing soul, Nigerian-born Nneka exudes a command of her craft with an individuality and intelligence rarely seen amongst today’s crop of soulful chanteuses.
Following the critical acclaim of 2006 album ‘Victim Of Truth’ (“…as good as The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” – Sunday Times), Nneka exceeds herself with the irresistible single ‘Heartbeat’ taken off her forthcoming album ‘No Longer At Ease’.
A haunting piano teases out a menacing bassline, while her smoky tones weave a journey through intricate beat patterns and twisted samples. Deeply soulful, yet undeniably catchy, it will take just one listen of this infectious track to be convinced of Nneka’s remarkable talent.
Nneka will be playing various festivals all over Europe this summer! Details will be announced soon.
Heartbeat is out 9th June 2008.
