**SHIPS FOR 26TH OCT**Celebrated British-Lebanese songwriter Nadine Khouri has returned with a new 3-track EP
‘A New Dawn’, due out October 26th.
An early devotee of shoegaze and the dreamy melancholia of bands such as Mazzy Star and
Sparklehorse, Khouri began her career as an acoustic singer-songwriter in New York, selfreleasing
her first EP ‘A Song to the City’. Returning to London, she was eventually discovered by
producer John Parish (PJ Harvey, This is the Kit) and began writing songs for what would become
her first LP, ‘The Salted Air’ released in 2017. The album earned plaudits from the likes of MOJO
and Drowned In Sound, was celebrated by Q (Feb 2017 Critics Choice) and selected as one of
Rough Trade’s Albums of the Year 2017. In the past year, Khouri has toured in the UK and Europe
and has shared the stage with artists such as Low, John Parish, Aldous Harding, H. Hawkline,
Howe Gelb, Adrian Crowley, and many more.
Self-produced and recorded in London in between touring commitments, Khouri’s latest offering
was mixed by Alan Weatherhead (Sparklehorse, Julien Baker) and is a powerful return from her
acclaimed debut. If her debut ‘The Salted Air’ were an allegory for displacement, in ‘A New Dawn’
Khouri has found the shore and displays a quiet, newfound confidence.
The title track, which premiered on CLASH in August, opens with droning harmonium, cascades of
tremolo guitar and mermaid-like backing vocals. ‘To Sleep’ sees violinist Basia Bartz doubling
Khouri’s nylon string guitar in a pizzicato set against swelling harmonium, piano and flurries of guitar delay. Penned as “a lullaby she wrote from the point of view of a younger self” in a war
zone, Khouri deals with the sounds of shelling by singing herself to sleep: “Teach me / A melody /
So I can hum myself to sleep”.
The beautifully arranged EP highlights Khouri’s talent for creating songs that feel both vast and
intimate, as her sumptuous vocal takes centre-stage with poignant lyrics set against delicate
atmospheric soundscapes.
Nadine will be supporting LOW solo on their ‘Double Negative’ tour in Europe this October, ahead
of her own headline dates in the UK.
