March 5, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Amsterdam-based singer and songwriter Nina June layers plainspoken emotion over multi-dimensional soundscapes steeped in strings, keys, guitar, and natural sound effects. Out today, Nina shares her latest single “Like An Enemy” from a forthcoming 2021 EP (details TBA).
Similar to the full EP, the track is produced by Duncan Mills (Florence + The Machine, The Vaccines, Jake Bugg, James Murphy). On “Like An Enemy,” Nina’s voice coasts above a glitchy beat towards a high-register crescendo. Speaking about the song, Nina says, “this song is a way for me to retrospectively stand up for myself as a strong woman, for all the times I didn’t when I should have.”
Directed by Amsterdam-based Lyon Pol, the video is about embracing strengths and vulnerabilities when betrayed. Speaking about the video, Nina says, “This video is about finding the strength to speak your truth as a woman.” Adding, “the video is about the range of emotions you go through when someone’s done you harm. It takes courage to show these emotions and being vulnerable doesn’t make you weak. We are conditioned to be polite, but sometimes someone doesn’t deserve your kindness but needs your honesty.”
“Like An Enemy” is available at all digital retailers HERE: https://ninajune.ffm.to/likeanenemy. Stay tuned for more to come from Nina June in the coming days and weeks.
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.
