Hello, guys! What are you up to these days? Myself, I’ve been reading a lot, but there’s something I’ve been doing way more often and that would be listening to music. Today’s coffee break is going to be all about music, and to be precise, about one particular musician – Nina Nesbitt. She’s a Scottish sensation, who stole hearts of thousands of Brits, plus mine. Born in 1994, she managed to release few EPs and one full album – Peroxide, which has been on shops’ shelves since February 2014. I found out about her from my friend Adam – big thanks to him, because I like my evenings better now with Nina’s music. Anyway, Nesbitt comes from Scottish Edinburgh, which takes pride from its vivid artistic scene. Rightfully so, it seems. Five points for Edinburgh!
Nina’s most known for her song “Stay out”, which I shared with you in the previous post. The song peaked at number 21 on the UK Singles Chart, what’s pretty great for a newcomer. Below I’ll post 5 of my favorite Nina’s songs, and reasons behind my choices.
As its title says, it’s all about self-photographs! It’s a fun song with a cute video, but the message is actually deeper than it initially seems. Look closer at these five lines:
“Taking pictures of myself, self, self
I guess I’m reaching out to be a assured
All I wanted was to be adored
Now you’re telling me I’m vain, vain, vain
Yeah, but you don’t feel my pain, pain, pain”
Sometimes we judge people, who post everything online, but actually, so many people are insecure, and facebook likes help them accept, what God gave them. At least, until likes don’t stop.
2) Stay out
There’s so much to explore, and as one Hobbit once said: “you step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to”. Just remember that:
“All these boys and girls are people
Looking for someone to be
All these boys and girls are people
Waiting for their hearts to beat”
3) No interest
A three minute way to communicate someone you’re tired of their nonsense, and they should back off. Politely said.
4) The Apple Tree
The cute accent thing is everything, plus lyrics are so on point. Sometimes we end up just like Adam and Eve, but there’s no apple tree to blame.
A beautiful ballad, perfect for thinking about people, who you used to know. “You’re just a statue of the boy I used to know” – well said, Nina.
These are only a few of Nina’s songs, and I would definitely recommend you to listen to the rest of her songs, especially “Mr C”, “Some you win”, “Boy” and “Way in the world” to name some.
P.s: did you know that Ed Sheeran’s song “Nina” is about Nina Nesbitt? They used to date.
What about you? What are your favorite songs and musicians?
Have a lovely day,
