Nadine Khouri is a musician and songwriter currently based in London. Her debut album ‘The Salted Air’ was produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey) and recorded in his hometown of Bristol. Sparse and minimal in its arrangement, the resulting album is a haunting collection of poetic and atmospheric meditations on loss and transformation, reminiscent of bands such as Low and Mazzy Star. Released in February 2017, ‘The Salted Air’ cemented Khouri’s one-to-watch status. It and was hailed by MOJO as “A thing of dark possessed beauty” in their four-star album review, celebrated by Q (Feb 2017 Critics Choice) and selected as one of Rough Trades Albums of the Year’. Khouri’s latest EP will be launched at Hoxton Hall in London with her band.
“A pocket-sized book of lullabies, and gothic shanties, whose sounds and lyrics evoke a series of wondrous daydreams and sorrowful, mood-filled, late-night tales.”
Drowned in Sound
“Nadine Khouri has always had the ability to make quietness and subtlety sound huge and mean more than it possibly could… The overwhelming breathless cool of Nadine’s voice is something that you cannot go without hearing.”
