NEMI steps out of South London’s thriving alternative R&B scene with an anthemic 80s inspired single ‘Come For You’.
As a 21-year old songwriter, originally from Portugal, NEMI manages to draw from her love of 80s classics, by the likes Kate Bush, Blondie and Madonna, whilst producing a refreshing, contemporary sound. The emerging artist offers further insight into her creative inspiration whilst discussing the lyrics: “This song encompasses the inexplicable urgency that arrives when you feel the need to see someone as soon as possible. That all-consuming primal impulse that takes over and makes people come for you no matter where or when.”
In spring of 2019 she is set to release the debut EP ‘YOU’ – a 4 track project that melds her unique personal aesthetic with that of her favourite coming of age films, Betty Blue and Stand By Me. The project has been produced in collaboration with Exmoor Emperor, whose previous credits include Ama Lou, Nao, Jones and Jelani Blackman.
NEMI has seamlessly curated an emboldened pop sound on ‘Come For You’, by combining old with new in a way that belongs to her – and it leaves no doubt of her being carried through to 2019 on a wave of well-earned hype.
