In Conversation With Nina Nesbitt

About a month ago now, Alex and I got the chance to chat to Nina Nesbitt all about how her sound has evolved, how she approaches songwriting for herself and others and what's next for her as an artist. She has recently just released a new single, "The Moments I’m Missing" from her album which will be out early next year!!



So, you just brought out a new single, "The Best You Had". You said it was a song that portrays the complicated feelings you had of an ex moving on and the fear that the new person is better than you, smarter, prettier. It is a very powerful message, what advice would you have for someone going through a similar though process?

I wrote it about my friend who had gone through a breakup and she found out he moved on within a couple of weeks. It was more an observation of her of how we mix our actual feelings with our own ego and our own pride. It is basically saying you can move on with anyone as long as it is not better than what we had,  which is quite pyscho but I feel like it is something that most people feel. 

Your music video reinforces the message of that. Knowing that is was from your friends perspective was it difficult to film at all?

Not really as I have definitely been through it and felt like that after a relationship. I really like to get in to character when I am singing.

What was your inspiration when you were younger to become a music artist? 

There wasn't like one thing but I always listen to a lot of female artists like Taylor Swift in her early day. I found that really cool as she didn't have this big fancy production or expensive sounding instruments, it was just her and a guitar. And I was like I can do that, I can go to Argos tomorrow and pick up a twenty pound guitar. So that really inspired me and strong female artists too!

How do you think your sound has evolved?

It has jus grown with me as a person I guess as I was 17/18 when I first started out and wrote my first album. Now I am 23, it is like a natural progression and I also think moving to London has had massive influence on my sound and being around so many different cultures. 

What is your favourite thing about touring? 

Probably seeing people sing along to your songs because when you do the shows you get to see people singing along and it's really cool. 

Your album is out in 2018, how are you feeling about it?

I am just excited to put it out, yeah!! It is basically all finished and the artwork is all done so it is not too much stress for me!

Honestly, getting the interview with Nina was pretty cool, to think that I seen her live back in her Peroxide era, I really never thought that I would ever get the opportunity to interview her. Also.... if you want to find out more about Nina Nesbitt make sure you listen to the full thing on my Mixcloud. And tickets to her tour are available here: Nina Nesbitt Tickets


Finally, a MAHOOSIVE thank you to Nina and her team xx
