Following the release of this years debut EP, “22:22”, and ahead of a short string of European dates, Bessie Turner returns with the Richard Woodcraft produced Nino. Here, she explores her anxieties and rolls them into a languid garage rock anthem that swings with an infectious hook.
Speaking on the song, Turner says:
“‘Nino’ is something my boyfriend calls me when I say I can’t do something, like if I am feeling unconfident about a performance, or something else that I totally have the ability to do, but I feel like I’m not able to, purely because of my own brain.
The song has some well disguised personal references that relate to me…body image, boredom, sex, and that feeling like you want to go into self-destruct mode because of it all. Life can overwhelm and consume everybody and having someone there to give you a push or a boost is sometimes all it takes.”
