Nothing But You is Japan’s dreamy duo whose music breathes new life into the lounge and blues genre. Nothing But You would sound best in the basement of a smoky jazz club, somewhere deep in a big city. Their sound is encapsulating and puts you in a place not many others can. Pure nostalgia dances seamlessly around you, immersing you in its captivating environment.
Their presence is strongest in the albums finale track, ‘Dream’. Nicky, the lead vocalist, tantalises with her soulful tones, whilst Shota caresses the keys, gently composing the most mesmerising sound imaginable. Meant To Be brims with wistfulness and transports you to a past time. It’s abundantly clear that the duo put their hearts and souls into this one. Their passion runs deep as Nicky’s voice soars, perfectly accompanying the fantastic pianist and showcasing their silky signature sound. Phil is the master behind the album’s production and playing the counterpart to Nicky’s satin vocals.
‘Dream’ is ready to stop you dead in your tracks. Igniting a flame within, this track surfaces a powerful love for an art-form many seem to have forgotten. Nothing But You were born to make music and if you like what you hear, why not immerse yourself in their full cover album Meant To Be?
