Newfoundland based songwriter Nico Paolo has shared new single ‘Now Or Never’.
The Portuguese born songwriter is based in the beautiful Canadian region, a base for her gorgeous compositions. Reminiscent of Aldous Harding or Grouper, her hushed intimacy also has a unique sense of emotional directness.
A full album will be released in Spring 2023, following sessions alongside Josh Van Tassel and Tim Baker at a cabin in Nova Scotia, and also at Nico’s home in St John’s, Newfoundland.
New song ‘Now Or Never’ is heavenly, a stark yet gorgeous piece of songwriting that puts us in mind of Jessica Pratt in its emotional honesty.
A suitable jumping off point on her work, Nico Paolo comments…
“The lyric ‘kiss me now or never, hold me close or let me go’ is one of the first lines I wrote and it has stayed relevant to my experiences ever since. This line has haunted me for almost a decade and recent experiences of loss and reconstructing of the self helped me to finally transform it into a song.”
Tune in now.
