NEMO LION OUT DEC 20
SINGER-songwriter Sylvie White's first single Nemo Lion is one of the most assured and impressive debuts to bob up in a long time.
Trying to slot the song into a genre is tricky – you could say it's a little bit folky, with a distinct reggae flavour, garnished with a wee smidge of rock and all that kind of stuff. And it's true, but what it really is, when all is said and done, is three glorious, galvanising minutes of joyous, boisterous, unaffected fun, love and pure pop ear candy that will have you humming the hook for days after just one listen.
More infectious than the plague and sweeter than a bowl of sugar-coated sugar glazed in sugar, Nemo Lion is a triumph – well written, beautifully arranged and performed and slickly produced.
Let's hope White, a native of Belgium who now calls Magnetic Island home, has plenty more of these little gems to come.
