Cinematic Pop Artist Nina June Releases ‘Shadows & Riddles’ EP (Out Now Via Nettwerk)
November 1, 2019 BY Nettwerk
Amsterdam-based, silver-blonde songstress Nina June creates cinematic pop songs that tell tales of the complex forms of human connections – sensual fables about the paradoxes of intimacy and independence. With a distinctive sound that she describes as “melancholic nostalgia,” her music parallels that of artists like Ane Brun, The Paper Kites, and Air.
With the latest EP Shadows & Riddles, Nina elegantly combines electronic sound design with acoustic elements. In support of the EP release, Nina says of the title track, “it’s a song about relationships in modern times. We strive for perfection, setting up these high and unrealistic standards, while all that we long for is to lie in the arms of someone that might not be perfect, but who truly loves us.”
Having just finished a run of summer dates with musician-producer SYML and fall dates with labelmates The Franklin Electric, Nina will return home to play a nearly sold-out record release show for fans at Bitterzoet in Amsterdam, NL on November 15.

About Nina June:
Shadows & Riddles follows the release of Nina’s critically acclaimed debut album Bon Voyage. Mainly self-produced by Nina and her musical companion Lieuwe Roonder, Electronic North called it a “unique and poignant sound” and Black Book proclaimed it as “impassioned and heartfelt.” For her debut, she was inspired by the cinematic compositions of Thomas Newman (American Beauty) and Michael Nyman (The Piano), as well as the ethereal pop of Rhye. Many people all over the world discovered Nina’s music through streaming services and several international films and TV-series. This led to playing in New York, receiving the Zilveren Notekraker in Amsterdam (a national prize for most promising new talent), singing with Thomas Dybdahl on stage and supporting Alex Vargas.
