Nadine Shah – Fast Food £13.99 – LP (Released 6th April)

Nadine Shah released her debut album Love Your Dum and Mad to critical acclaim in 2013. A stint on the road with Depeche Mode followed and opening for Bat for Lashes provided notable highlights on an extensive tour. Created with trusted collaborator and producer Ben Hillier the excellent follow-up Fast Food is here.

Born from a fervid 2 month writing session, Fast Food exists on a knife-edge – every bit as dramatic as we’ve come to expect from Nadine but with a sharpened eye for all things hook laden. Recorded live at Ben’s studio The Pool the albums jagged nature is owed in part to the contributions of guitarist Nick Webb and bassist Pete Jobson (I Am Kloot).

Building on the bruised honesty and charm of its predecessor, Fast Food rings with the confidence of an artist completing their most coherent musical chapter to date. “The last album took so long to make that by the time it came out it didn’t feel like it was a very clear representation of where I was musically, but this time it’s different,” Nadine explains. Fast Food is a more concentrated effort: it is the sound of Nadine as she is now – stepping out from behind the piano and growing with immeasurable confidence.

‘It is a reflection upon a world obsessed with instant gratification and a life full of complicated relationships. Its the sudden realisation that you’re never going to be anybody’s first love ever again’.
