Nick D’ and the Believers released “Nina Simone” yesterday, the first single by the band this year. The synth-driven track is pulsing and upbeat, a generally fantastic piece of alt-pop.
The track was conceived last year during a stripped-down radio performance. It started as a love song but morphed into an ode to frontman Nick D’Andrea’s daughter, who is now eight months old.
Catch “Nina Simone” on regular rotation on CD102.5, streaming services and below. Keep an eye out for two more singles coming from the band in the next year.
