Nakhane has shared new song ‘Standing In Our Way’.
The South African artist is now firmly rooted in London, a city they have come to use as a creative base. A fantastic vocalist, new album ‘Bastard Jargon’ is out on March 31st, and it’s another intensely personal document from this multi-faceted artist.
Dubbed an “existential sex album”, the record is trailed by this vivid new single. ‘Standing In Our Way’ is in part a classic soul song, with Nakhane’s exquisite voice putting you in mind of Marvin, or modern day troubadours such as D’Angelo. It’s such a potent, intimate song however, that it transcends this, and becomes truly their own.
Lyrically, ‘Standing In Our Way’ is about claiming intention, and removing obstacles from your life. Nakhane comments…
“What happens when you realise that perhaps you’re the reason for how badly things are going? You name the thing, you name the problem, and then you direct yourself (with kindness) to where you should be.”
Tune in now.
