NICK HAKIM - BET SHE LOOKS LIKE YOU

Nick Hakim

Nick Hakim will release his debut full-length album Green Twins via ATO Records on May 19, and the release will be preceded by a North American & European tour. The anticipated album follows his breakthrough Where Will We Go, Pt. I & II EPs that were self-released. Green Twins is an experimental step forward with emotional heft gleaned from his experiences in the years since. Intimate first single, “Bet She Looks Like You,” was recorded mostly in the New York-based singer-songwriter’s home bedroom, and was one of the first songs that saw Hakim embrace his new experimental way of songwriting and recording. The Brooklyn-based, Washington, D.C.-raised musician grew up in a household overflowing with musical diversity and cites influences ranging from soul to hiphop, to South American folk, lo-fi  and DC punk. It comes as no surprise that Nick tends to blend genres, mixing an ambient airy psychedelic sound with the raw gut-wrenching emotion of the blues. The new record draws from influences spanning Robert Wyatt, Marvin Gaye and Shuggie Otis to My Bloody Valentine. “We wanted to imagine what it would have sounded like if RZA had produced a Portishead album. We experimented with engineering techniques from Phil Spector and Al Green’s Back Up Train, drum programming from RZA and Outkast, and were listening to a lot of The Impressions, John Lennon, Wu-Tang, Madlib, and Screaming Jay Hawkins.” “Nick Hakim makes soulful music that feels lovingly dreamy and hopelessly bleary at once... his layered vocals swim across each other and send shivers down your spine.” – NPR Music
