GENRE | FEMINIST GROOVEMENT
VERDICT | TWO VOCAL CHORDS ARE BETTER THAN ONE
LABEL | INDEPENDENT
RELEASE | 7.31.12
Since its dawning, the world of music has been bound by the unspoken principle that James Brown verbalized in 1966: “This is a man’s world.” Our gradual shift from such archaic beliefs forced him to clarify, “but it wouldn’t be nothing, without a woman or a girl.”
That’s much better.
In the case of Nina Sky, we get not one but two girls, twin sisters Nicole and Natalie Albino, who drive their message of feminine empowerment through their self-written evocative yet playful lyrics. The duo’s second album, appropriately named Nicole & Natalie, is an 8-track release marked by its euphoric melodies, varying producers and ability to get your toes tapping with the beat. They have a more settled sound than much of what punctuates the pop world as their R&B musings gently mesh with an updated production outlook.
They’ve got soul, style and fire in their identical eyes.
Brown, you’ve again been challenged.
