NINA JUNE // BON VOYAGE
On March 23rd 2018, Amsterdam based artist Nina June released her album BON VOYAGE.
The album is a display of Nina's view of the world; "It's about the hidden loneliness of our generation. We are all young, beautiful and talented. But also searching. For love, freedom and our personal mission. We have never been zo interconnected, yet we are alone in this journey. BON VOYAGE is a greeting to everyone who faces this quest".
Nina finds inspiration for her songs during a 700 mile solitary walk through France and spain, while listening to the film music of Thomas Newman (American Beauty) and Michael Nyman (The Piano), as well as the ethereal pop of Rhye and Zero7. During this trip Nina experienced life at its most pure and basic.
The first songs that Nina released from the album, already gained millions of streams on Spotify and were synced in (inter)national movies and tv-series. Also her first song "For Love" was playlisted by Dutch Radio 2, as well as "Till Dawn".
BON VOYAGE was mainly self produced by Nina and her musical companion Lieuwe Roonder. To finish the album, Nina worked with Tim Bran (London Grammar, Rae Morris, Birdy) in London. They combine both classical organic elements and modern electronic production. The result: a series of atmospheric, cinematic popsongs.
Nina will present her album in a sold out Paradiso, Amsterdam on the 25th of March.
'Impassioned and heartfelt, she forwards a particularly sultry, alluring brand of urbane pop which calls to mind the likes of Massive Attack and Zero7 - with lush electronics and sensual seductive vocals' - Black Book (New York, US)
'Vocally, Nina June evokes comparisons with Ane Brun and Agnes Obel, but her artistic vision paints itself from a very different emotional palate to create a unique and poignant sound' - Electronic North (UK)
'the piano ballad brings forth ideas of London Grammar synced to a plaintive orchestra of Agnes Obel, each swell in movement is purposefully delivered and thoroughly felt. Twinning both classical organic elements to modern electronic production’ - Bitter Sweet Symphonies (UK)
'An album full of highlights" - Out Here All Night (USA)
