Nick Hakim has shared new single ‘Feeling Myself’.
The songwriter has something special, with his slim but immaculate catalogue drifting between neo-soul, R&B, and indie’s more left-field aspects. New album ‘COMETA’ is out on October 21st through ATO Records, and he’s back with one more preview.
Out now, ‘Feeling Myself’ is almost a dialogue with his own soul, with Nick’s refulgent vocal oozing emotion at every turn. Moving between masks, ‘Feeling Myself’ seems to ask powerful questions of its maker, something heightened by the beautiful arrangement.
Opaque, and laced with light, ‘Feeling Myself’ has that soulful touch only Nick Hakim can truly provide, another sign of his pointed individuality.
“I’ve never really written anything that’s like that in terms of the personas. Where I’m coming from is always conversational like I’m talking to someone… I’m being nice to myself and the energy boosting around is confidence and loving yourself in a way that you haven’t really felt in a long time.”
Tune in now.
Catch Nick Hakim at London’s Avalon Cafe on October 27th.
