Louisa Nicklin Shares Single 'To Be Fine' + Announces Debut Album

Louisa Nicklin Shares Single 'To Be Fine' + Announces Debut Album

Annabel Kean / Thursday 25th February, 2021 11:21AM

One year since she released her first EP When Are You Home, Tāmaki's Louisa Nicklin announces her self-titled debut album and shares expansive lead track 'To Be Fine'. Featuring on the first single are bandmates Mason Fairey (The Naenae Express, Green Grove) on drums, and Pixels' Eamon Edmundson-Wells on bass and baritone guitars. New Nicklin collaborator, the endlessly talented JY Lee (Avantdale Bowling Club, Yoko Zuna) is also on the low frequency buzz, providing an epic thrum of bass clarinet. Although not on 'To Be Fine', classical composer and cellist Antonia Barnett-McIntosh was in the album's Roundhead recording sessions too, just another thing to look forward to when the full nine song collection comes out in May. Louisa Nicklin is already sounding even more mature than When Are You Home, with selective, booming instrumentation complementing but never overpowering her own rich, soaring voice. The ideas behind the song touch on coming of age too, as Nicklin explains here:

“This song looks at the feeling of leaving a childhood space as an adult. When writing this song it all came together so quickly, each section just seemed to tack on to the next and when I brought it to the band they quickly helped me to develop it into the single it is now”

Enjoy the first taste of Louisa Nicklin's forthcoming debut album...

Louisa Nicklin's self-titled debut album is out digitally and on vinyl Tuesday 25th May.
