“She has a soulful and dexterous voice and a sound that is thoroughly contemporary with programmed beats, vocal harmonies that could be the Staves, a melody that could be Solange and a folky Alt Pop sensibility that could be Arlo Parks. Mostly though, it is classy, dynamic and impressive. A real talent.”
Neil March, Trust The Doc & Fresh On The Net
“Combining the inspiration from her home country of Brazil with more Westernised RnB and cooler pop tendencies, this release really feels like the true beginning of Nadedja’s career - which is sure to skyrocket following this release. . . . The year is off to an absolute flier, and could definitely be hers for the taking.”
Robyn Walker, Spotlight UK
“She has a particular universe that cannot be confused . . . We are expecting good future news with several new music projects for 2021 from Nadedja and we cannot wait.”
Mathilde Ruriack, Conversations About Her
“This track reminded of London Grammar and I loved the way it spun into a foot to the floor, get off your seat and dance party number”
Jamie Taylor, NARC.
