This album has been out for a long time, but I have only recently started to listen to Nina Nesbitt, and I think she is brilliant!
The album starts off with the title track Peroxide and is quickly followed by chart topper Stay Out. The album is full of catchy, poppy folk songs and emotional ballads; which with Nina’s husky voice, are perfect.
Stay Out and Selfies were both released before the album and shot straight into the top 40 charts and were played by all the stations.
The album is one that you can mostly jump up and down to and dance like nobody is watching, songs like He’s the One I’m Bringing Back have a beat to them that in your head you can imagine the song being played in the summer at a garden party with all the guests being jolly.
Most of the songs have a meaning behind them, as a lot of them are about love and heart ache, however some of them like The Hardest Part feel a little dry and hard of emotion, or at least obvious emotion.
As well as the heart felt songs on the album there are also some tongue and cheek ones such as; Mr C. The song is about those guys in a club that try to buy your attention. Nesbitt says “It’s basically saying I don’t care how many drinks you can buy me or how nice your bank account is, I’d rather find someone with a more appealing personality… Mr C stands for Mr Club as I feel like I’ve met a lot of these guys in clubs.”
I like the album and I think, if you guys like folky-poppy-heartfelt songs then this album would be perfect for you.
In my opinion all of the songs flow into each other perfectly, also if you haven’t listened to it yet, you all really need to!
