Nina Nesbitt Thursday 31st January at Banquet Records, 6:00pm The day before her new album is released, Nina Nesbitt plays an all ages set in the shop. The second full length from the singer-songwriter, titled The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change sees another offering of emotionally charged electro-pop and we're excited to welcome her back to Kingston. The album bears no hint of compromise as Nina demonstrates her unique talent for acute lyrical observations and ear-worm melodies. Heralding a musical change of direction from Nina with more obvious pop influences, the album is a scintillating journey through a whole range of genres and moods. In-store Grade A. Priority will be given to anyone who orders a copy of The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change from us. CD | LP
