Nadia Reid

“The Arrow & The Aim”


by tom johnson

Informed by something of an internal struggle between searching for her own self-worth and the fall-out from such endeavours, New Zealand’s Nadia Reid has announced a brand new album; the follow-up to her 2014 ‘Listen To Formation, Look For The Signs‘ breakthrough debut. Released via the new Yorkshire-based label, Basin Rock, which is also behind the new record from Julie Byrne, ‘Preservation‘ is out on March 3rd and is preceded by a brand new track, “The Arrow & The Aim” which is streaming below from today.

Immediately more grandiose than we’ve come to expect from Reid, the new track is a striking proposition from the outset, her captivating vocal leading the track in to grandiose territory as the whole piece swells like some magnificent storm on the horizon. Cramming such aesthetics in to just three minutes could quite easily have led to something disjointed, but Reid handles it all with such heartfelt consideration that it feels beautifully balanced throughout.

Shared alongside news of a European tour this-coming Febraury, you can stream the new track below right now:
