NUUXS at Rough Trade EastThe War on Drugs - A Deeper Understanding / 'Pain: Love his voice and classic melodies, lyrics are die-hard romantic rock and I find that beautiful. You can just picture yourself driving into that American sunset in a classic car with the Clyde to your Bonnie. Nostalgic.


NUUXS at Rough Trade EastLittle Dragon - Season High: Effortlessly cool, her delivery and production encompass her perfectly one of my favourite groups.


NUUXS at Rough Trade EastSteely Dan - Aja / 'Black Cow': I love the rhythm, group backing vocals, sexy and smooth, perfect for Sunday lounging and dancing round the room


NUUXS at Rough Trade EastPhoenix - United / 'If I Ever Feel Better': Hands down one of my favourite bands, I first heard them one summer in St Tropez with some friends of mine who had introduced them to me. The sun was shining and we were riding round in a little old red car blasting 'If I Ever Feel Better'. Music is not only about the composition it’s where it takes you. Phoenix have a way of making you want to move with their breezy yet snappy vocals, quick step rhythms and funky guitar notes.


NUUXS at Rough Trade EastCurtis Mayfield - 'Pusherman' / 'Freddie’s Dead': When I first started singing I was more of a back up singer and was surrounded by session musicians. One in particular, Matteo Grassi - incredible Bass player and a dear friend of mine - had me singing Curtis Mayfield over and over - 'Freddie’s Dead', 'Give Me Love', 'Pusherman'. His love for funk music became mine.
