Nadine Shah Announces New Ep 'Dreary Town' Released 15th April 2013

Following last year's critically acclaimed 'Aching Bones' EP, Nadine Shahhas found a new home with R&S Records imprint Apollo, who will be releasing her brand new 'Dreary Town' EP on 15 April 2013. Picking up where her debut left off, 'Dreary Town' continues the emergence of a significant talent.

Hailing from the north east town of Whitburn, yet London based, this young artist's compositions lean towards the dramatic, with her smoky husky-hued vocals imbued with an understated unease, with a stage presence that belies her youthful age.

Lead track 'Dreary Town', with its plummeting melodies and anguished vocals, is the most personal of all three and the track that convinced producer Ben Hillier (The Horrors, Blur, Depeche Mode) to work with her upon hearing an early version uploaded to youtube. Closely followed by 'Bobby Heron' with creeping guitar strums driving a story about her great grandmothers only boy. "He died at sea" Nadine reveals, "my great gran was obviously distraught but even more so because she couldn't bury her little boy. There was this clairvoyant in our hometown, a blind guy everyone knew. She went to see him and he told her exactly where the body was. That night my great grandad went out in his fishing boat. Sure enough the body was where they'd been told it would be, and with a grappling hook he retrieved Bobby's body. My mam and Aunty always tell that story. I wrote the song for my mum really, I wanted to ensure that her tale lived on."

The new EP is topped off with the singer's wonderfully sinister take on 'Cry Me A River.' Having begun singing it when she was a much younger jazz singer, Nadine just loved how you could "really twist the lyric and rather than sounding like a wounded woman you can be more of madwoman seeking revenge!"
