Bessie Turner - Nino

Taking mellow to a whole new level, Bessie Turner unveils her glistening new single, Nino. With a large helping of sun sprinkled charm, the Ipswich-based artist throws together giddying guitars and vocal harmonies that're so sweet they'd give even the Beach Boys a run for their money. "'Nino' is something my boyfriend calls me when I say I can't do something," Bessie explains, "like if I am feeling unconfident about a performance, or something else that I totally have the ability to do, but I feel like I'm not able to, purely because of my own brain". "The song has some well disguised personal references that relate to me... body image, boredom, sex, and that feeling like you want to go into self-destruct mode because of it all. Life can overwhelm and consume everybody and having someone there to give you a push or a boost is sometimes all it takes". Take a listen for yourselves below.
