Nadine Shah – Buckfast

Singer-songwriter Nadine Shah has released a fourth single from her forthcoming album, Kitchen Sink (due 5th June), Buckfast. Like the previous three singles, the artwork for the single features a plate of luxurious food. A pile of profiteroles this time. The Official audio clip on YouTube features the pile of profiteroles spinning on a record deck (the same as the previous singles Kitchen Sink & Trad).

Buckfast is downtempo, blues-tinged Post-Punk. Unusually funky vocal melodies snake in and out of crunchy guitar chords, plodding bass lines & unusual percussion. There is almost a funk-rock feel to the verses, not dissimilar to a less heavy Rage Against The Machine.

Here’s the official audio for Buckfast, as well as the previous two singles.

And to top it off, here’s the excellent & creepy video for the first single from Kitchen Sink, Ladies For Babies (Goats For Love).

Music Song of the Day

Song of The Day (A-Z): Nadine Shah – Evil

Day 5 (E). Today I’ve chosen Evil by Nadine Shah, Tyneside-based singer/songwriter of Pakistani/Norwegian heritage. Evil, from her excellent 2017 album Holiday Destination deals with her sense of identity and heritage through the lens of the post-Brexit spike in anti-immigrant hate crime.

I love the energy & confident visible in this excellent live performance.

All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil himself
All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil

Look, I’m standing right here before you
I can only offer what I’ve been taught
And you look on with eyes from another
How can I compete with an ingrained thought
And tell your followers that I’m crazy
If it stops them questioning anymore
Oh, keep them tidy, keep them beside you
And keep them coming back for more

All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil himself
All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil

Look, I’m standing right here before you
I can only offer what I’ve been taught
And you look on with eyes from another
How can I compete with an ingrained thought
And tell your followers that I’m crazy
If it stops them questioning anymore
Oh, keep them tidy, keep them beside you
And keep them coming back for more

All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil himself
All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil himself
All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil himself
All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil

All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil himself
All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil himself
All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil himself
All these folk, they think that I’m evil
Like I am the living devil
