NINA To Release ‘Beyond Memory’ EP In May, Produced By Richard X
Two and a half years after gaining attention for her haunting track “We Are The Wild Ones,” synth-pop enthusiast NINA is readying her Beyond Memory EP for release on May 27, plus her debut album for some time after that. This time around, the Berlin singer managed to wrangle British producer Richard X (Annie, Will Young, Goldfrapp) to help steer her music into just the right analogue-soaked synthwave territory.
“I’m very excited to have Richard X producing and curating my new release,” NINA says in a press release for her upcoming EP. “He is very selective, so I’m humbled to have him on board. He totally gets my vision and my sound. These songs are very close to me, as it was a long creative process to get them how I wanted them, and I opened up to write very personal lyrics.”
She’s not kidding about that selective part. “If I’m going to be spending time listening and working on music, it’s got to be something I like, or it’s not going to work — so there’s no point for anybody,” Richard X told Idolator in July 2013. “That’s been my policy from when I started.”
NINA’s Beyond Memory EP will be released by Aztec Records. Look for it on May 27.
