Single Review: Nina Nesbitt – Chewing Gum

Nina Nesbitt Modern Love

Nina Nesbitt releases first taste of upcoming EP
Remember Nina Nesbitt? This gorgeous young lady had a great year in 2013 when her debut album Peroxide (with the fantastic title track) was released. The catchy single ‘Selfies’ became a radio hit and she toured across Europe. After this, things got rather quiet around Nina, but this is about to change very soon! On the 5th of February, she will release her new EP called Modern Love and the first single, ‘Chewing Gum’ is out now!

Nina announced the release of the EP back in December together with premiering the cover art, which shows a completely different side to her. The sound of ‘Chewing Gum’ is completely different to what she has done before as well. It is much more Tove Lo than Amy MacDonald if you know what I mean! Speaking about Tove, the style and instrumentation of ‘Chewing Gum’ is actually not miles away from her hit ‘Talking Body’. Gone is the folky singer-songwriter vibe, replaced by an electronic pop sound with quite a sassy attitude in the lyrics. Most of all ‘Chewing Gum’ is a well written pop tune with a catchy and smart hook that is based on the sentence: ‘I’m just chewing gum, until the flavour’s gone.” This is an exciting first taste of what we can expect from miss Nesbitt!
