BAND OF THE WEEK – Nick Hakim

Raw, mellow sounds from this Brooklyn-based musician. I have recently discovered him through the release of his single ‘Green Twins’ – a relaxed, ambient tune, with drums to remind you of Groove Armada’s ‘At the River’ – and of course had to listen to more. He’s not released an album as of yet, but has a select few singles out there for you to listen to and enjoy. Particular good ‘uns include ‘Bet She Looks Like You’, with Black Keys-like vocals and a lounging beat, the bluesy ‘I Don’t Know’ and similarly jazzy ‘Cold’. A brilliant artist who we wish we’d found earlier!
