After kicking off 2015 with an intimate show at St Pancras Old Church, the hotly tipped songstress returns to the capital on April 30 with her mesmerising live show.
Her debut album, Like I'm A Warrior (released June 1) is a masterstroke in poise; classic pop hooks intertwine with clear as crystal production and devastingly brilliant lyricism.
Nicolas' music is the perfect soundtrack to introspection; dreamy but with one foot firmly in reality, built from events in her life, but universally applicable. “I want the first sentence to be something that you listen to and you’re just like ‘I know’. I don’t want it to be like ‘I’m so sad and lonely’, I want it to be something new, but I want people to relate, and I can’t make people relate to something I don’t feel, so it has to be personal,” she explained to us at the tail end of 2014 when speaking to Best Fit about her inclusion on our Ones To Watch 2015 shortlist.
Emilie Nicolas plays Hoxton Bar & Kitchen on April 30. Tickets go on general sale Thursday 2 April at 10am, here.
Just hours before Emilie mesmerised the sold out crowd at the aforementioned St Pancras Old Church in January we filmed an intimate performance of "Grown Up". Set against a sea of lasers and brooding melancholia, Nicolas and band delivered a genuinely thrilling rendition of a song that's merely a glimpse of the talent that this artist beholds.
