Neev, a Glasgow-born musician, is set to release her debut album, “Katherine“, on April 28th. The album consists of intricate indie-folk songs that pack a lyrical punch, exploring different facets of an individual’s identity. Every song on “Katherine” is tied to the idea of identity, as Neev seeks to understand each person as someone’s child, sibling, partner, and the job they do. Neev‘s passion for theatre and film has been integral to her development as a songwriter, with one-person plays being her favourite source of inspiration.
Neev‘s new single, “Fast Patterns“, is a reflection on not knowing how to be there for someone in their darkest moments. The track carries all of the trademark sounds of the artist’s previous releases, with acoustic guitars, soaring string arrangements, and layered backing vocals found throughout. We see similarities with great favourites like Lucy Rose, or the intensity of Daughter’s music. The track (and album) was recorded at Neev‘s home studio and the homes of a host of talented musician friends, with much of it engineered, mixed, and produced almost entirely by herself.
