Powerful second single keeps Nadia Phillips on track
Your Dark Side is the second single from young Australian singer/songwriter Nadia Phillips. It delivers the quality lyrics and musicality that have become a trait of this emerging artist who has taken her Lofi bedroom grunge out of the bedroom.
It follows her successful debut release On Reflection, which attracted insightful reviews in Australia, UK and Belgium in October 2020. The music video for On Reflection also attracted rotation on MTV.
The new single Your Dark Side is a guitar driven song that delivers a powerful narrative with lyrical imagery and strong vocal lines. A melancholic mood ruminates with powerful choruses using crunching guitars and alluring drum beats. Her compelling vocal performance features throughout.
“I wrote this song to process the hurt and confusion felt when someone you love becomes unfamiliar and cold,” said Nadia.
Nadia Phillips is a singer/songwriter who keeps exploring instruments, styles and genres. From the historic township of Castlemaine in Australia, she enjoyed an upbringing surrounded by music, art and nature.
Piano tuition from an early age shaped her passion. She has since been playing guitar to write, record and perform. The complications of self understanding and the longing to understand others drive her songwriting.
“As with my previous single, I did the bulk of the recording and tracking with my own gear in the bedroom, and worked with Ben Todd on drums and sound engineer Simon Moro to polish Your Dark Side for release.”
“I have started performing live again, which has been amazing after the year of upheavel in the world.”
The release of Your Dark Side will be followed with a music video, made by the same crew who produced the clip for On Reflection. An EP with band The Undecided coming soon too.
