Amsterdam-based singer/songwriter Nina June returns with dreamy new single “Wish You Well” [feat. Old Sea Brigade], where her sultry vocals coast over breezy acoustic guitar, picking up momentum as the chorus hits: “I want to wish you well, but I don’t want to leave.” Old Sea Brigade counters with an equally passionate passage as their vocals melt together.
“It’s about two people who cannot live with or without each other,” June notes. “The chorus essentially feels like they’re fighting and making up again. You can get really tired of the process, because it happens over and over again. Even though it’s a heavy subject, it’s still a dance between these lovers.”
Old Sea Brigade adds, “I’ve always been a big fan of Nina, so it was an honor to write this one with her. We wrote it over zoom during the pandemic, then last February we got to finally meet in person and sing together at my show in Amsterdam. It was a nice full circle moment. Happy for this song to finally be out in the world.”
Nina June adorns living and breathing alternative pop soundscapes with keen observations, earned wisdom, and arresting storytelling. She first introduced herself with Bon Voyage back in 2018 and was honored with her home country’s coveted Zilveren Notekraker—an award reserved for “Promising New Talent.” A year later, she expanded her audience with the Shadows & Riddles EP in between touring worldwide and receiving major film and television syncs. During 2021, she reached critical mass with her sophomore album, Meet Me on The Edge of Our Ruin. The standout “Rainbow Ashes” reeled in over 7 million Spotify streams and counting, and she incited widespread tastemaker applause from American Songwriter, Atwood Magazine, MUNDANE, Under The Radar Magazine, Unpublished, and more. FLAUNT christened it “10 eloquent and artful arrangements,” while Rolling Stone (DE) took note of June’s “glitter voice.”
Stay tuned for more new music coming from Nina June this fall.
