Nina June Shares “Trust Fall” From Upcoming EP (Out June 25)
May 21, 2021 BY Nettwerk
“’Trust Fall’ is written as a love song between Mother Earth and mankind. How it started in harmony, how the earth gave all she had in good faith, and how mankind let it all go to waste. But also, about the fact that it’s not too late to turn the tide yet” – Nina June
Amsterdam-based singer and songwriter Nina June returns with “Trust Fall,” the latest single from her upcoming EP Side A – Our Garden (out June 25 via Nettwerk Records).
The dreamy piano-driven “Trust Fall” is an unexpected love story. While songs grappling with climate change are nothing new, Nina addresses the state of the planet through the complex power structures of any relationship and, ultimately, the need for change to find harmony. “I said ‘bathe in my water, dance on my mountain,” Mother Earth invites, only to watch it “slip away through my hands.” As if opening a window to hope, the lyrics culminate with the refrain, “it’s is not too late, my dear, to change it all.” Relationships with other humans bring in notions of mutual respect and fairness, and those same ideas must be applied to the human-nature relationship. We are not simply a part of nature, but our actions and experiences are part of an ongoing exchange with our natural environment.
Recently, Nina recorded a Livestream concert with a string quartet, performing the entire EP, including “Trust Fall.”

About Nina June:
Heightened senses strengthen communication. Receptive to even the most subtle internal and external stimuli, Nina June leans into acute sensitivity as a lyricist and embraces expansive scope as a sonic auteur. On her forthcoming EP (Nettwerk Records), the Amsterdam-based singer and songwriter layers plainspoken emotion over multi-dimensional soundscapes steeped in strings, keys, guitar, and natural sound effects. After amassing more than 20 million streams worldwide, Nina June has been quietly making waves with her 2018 independent debut Bon Voyage and her 2019 Nettwerk Records debut EP Shadows & Riddles. Filtering restless wanderlust into lithe anthems of awakening, she captivated listeners with a string of successful singles, sold-out shows, and Amsterdam’s prestigious Zilveren Notekraker—an honor in celebration of “Promising New Talent.” In March 2020, she traveled to London to work with producer Duncan Mills (Florence + The Machine, The Vaccines, Jake Bugg, James Murphy) to record the new music.
