Nina’s personality only really comes through on the slightly less polished ‘Brit Summer’.
Nina Nesbitt’s ‘Stay Out’ EP, released in April, proved the Scottish singer more than capable of accessorising her pretty acoustic guitar tunes with pithy lyrics and adventurous rhythms. Sadly, this four-song follow-up finds the 19-year-old inching into blander territory. ‘Way In The World’ and ‘Not Me’ are dull mum-pop numbers; singing about a messy relationship on ‘Spiders’, she comes off like a budget Taylor Swift. Nina’s personality only really comes through on the slightly less polished ‘Brit Summer’. It’s billed as a demo, but is significantly more enjoyable than the over-buffed rest of the EP.
