NIVE SINGS [2012 (2009 / RE-RELEASE)]
Watch & Listen
Nive Nielsen calls her own music Inuit Indie Rock. This describes an individualistic, atmospheric folk-pop that has its roots in the singer’s homeland – Greenland – but is musically internationally oriented. And for this she already won the US Independent Music Award (IMA) with her debut.
Traces of jazz and country are mixed into a sensual, dreamy neofolk, which is in its essence a condensed indie pop in terms of content and music. Behind The Deer Children are hidden next to the hard core of the band an illustrious series of guest musicians and friends – on the releases of Nive and The Deer Children there are contributions from members of the Eels, the Black Keys and Giant Sands and many others; among them John Parish, who became known as a producer or musician of and with PJ Harvey, Tracy Chapman, the Eels or Goldfrapp. (By the way, he is also the producer of the 16 Horsepower Low Estate album from 1997). As diverse as this portfolio and her albums is the artist herself, who, in addition to music, also devotes herself to acting and was featured, among other things, in the Oscar-winning film The New World by Terrence Malick. 2012 erschien ihr Album Nive Sings! als Re-Release in Zusammenarbeit mit Glitterhouse Records, 2015 Feet First.
