She’s the Tyneside poet of our times, fixing an uncompromising eye on modern Britain. Nadine Shah’s noirish brooding ballads and post-punk anthems are both outspoken and empathetic. They’ve earned her a Mercury nomination, and sonic comparisons to Nick Cave, Anna Calvi, and Anohni. Across her three albums, most recently Holiday Destination in 2017, Nadine is unafraid to confront demons both internal and international; she does so with a kind of blistering beauty we could all probably do with a dose of.
