Northern Europe has always been a hotbed for precociously-talented songstresses; Robyn, Lykke Li, Fever Ray. Soon to join them will be Danish alt pop star Nabiha.
Championed by VH1’s Hear It First platform (a major industry early-adopter that’s profiled talent like Lorde and Sam Smith), It’s not all hype. Her previous track ‘Mind The Gap’ simultaneously shot up to #1 on the UK Urban Chart, #2 in the UK Club Chart, and #3 in the UK Pop Charts – a sign that the most picky music nation on the planet is loving her vibe. It’s not only Europe that’s been entranced. Across the US, Nabiha features in the current issue of NYLON, describing her sound as “upbeat synth-soul” and “pop tinged with dance and house.” She’s already caught all the right eyes and ears both sides of the Atlantic with POP JUSTICE, Perez Hilton and BBC R1Xtra all featuring her. It’s time for Nabiha to take that next destined step to join the ranks of cool female, sophisticated pop.
