New Zealand folk rock artist Nadia Reid released her excellent debut album, Listen To Formation, Look For The Signs, in 2014. And if Reid’s newest single “Richard” is any indication, her follow-up LP Preservation is poised to be an ever greater success. Reid’s mesmeric voice offers a steady stream of surreal, dreamlike lyrics (“Pushing at the arrow of time/ Taking back the hand that is mine”) while striking guitar riffs hint at something dark and foreboding. “Richard” is a powerful track that demands repeated listening. Stream it below.
Listen to another single from Nadia Reid’s Preservation, out March 3.
