New single from Llandudno’s Nia Wyn is soulful, but light and accessible. The vibrant old school-meets-new school arrangement and Nia’s sultry voice make for a lusty listening experience. The whole thing blends like coffee and cream.
Despite comparisons to blue-eyed soul icons like Amy Winehouse, the sound presented to us is still undeniably fresh – an interesting blend of genres from doo wop to ska – to straight up pop. Other than Nia’s exuberant vocal, something that immediately draws attention is the track’s production quality. I was quite surprised to hear some of the tropical EDM components through out the chorus. Not to knock points off; a strong rhythm section lends itself to this song. This unlikely combination really works around Nia’s voice, which is resoundingly crisp, yet robust. And the hook in the chorus is an earworm of the highest order. One that I imagine will bury deep into my cranium and have me humming for days.
Come Home to You drops this Wednesday on all streaming platforms. Nia Wyn is an artist who will continue to grow and progress, and who should be on your radar in 2021.
