“Farewell” by Nina: will you take back a little epic pop slap?

With a sparkling first EP, the young Frenchwoman demonstrates that she masters the mix of genres to perfection.

It’s now exactly a year, we were programming Nina for one of our monthly parties Inrocks Super Club at La Boule Noire. Much good has come to us. Although there is a long way to go and the Zénith tour is still a long way off, the Parisienne marked the year with Goodbye, in five sparkling titles that propelled her to the rank of best-hope-of-pop-made-in-France-and-sung-in-French. The genre that recalls as much the Gainsbourg of the 1980s as the Clara Luciani of the beginnings.

Written in Fuerteventura between 2020 and 2021, the songs that make up this EP have since had a thousand lives in concert: “We started with two on stage, for obvious reasons of meansshe recalls. But we took advantage of this constraint: we spontaneously moved towards much more direct things. I like this rock side live.” The formula is simple: Nina on vocals and keyboard and her sidekick Nicolas Delahaye – infused with British rock – on bass.

“I want the live to remain as pure as possible, that the instruments are played by humans”

After the release of the disc, without a turner, without a record company and therefore in total autonomy, she manages to book about ten dates outside Paris, with obligatory passage by the Norman festivals Biches and Pete the Monkey. Something to catch the eye of professionals and Uni-T Production in particular (November Ultra, Requin Chagrin, Patrick Watson), who offered him the first parts of the Izia tour: “We were able to add a drummer, which brings more life, and we will still evolve with someone on the synths to free me up a bit. I like to move on stage, but it’s not very practical when you’re stuck behind your keyboard. I want the live to remain as pure as possible, that the instruments are played by humans”, she continues.

Crossed on the Trois Baudets stage in Paris last October, as part of the MaMA Festival, Nina gave us a little slap. We had rarely seen such a mixture of genres, as if French pop had gone on Erasmus in Manchester. When asked about a hypothetical first album, she replies that she will take the time: “I discovered a lot of things on stage. There is bound to be something quite raw that will emanate from all of this.”
