Novum - Jodie Nicholson
North East writer/producer Jodie Nicholson’s sophomore album ‘Safe Hands’ is ultimately about self trust, in both an introspective and creative sense. Across twelve tracks, Nicholson uses brooding chamber-pop and synth-laden alt-pop to navigate many of the different relationships we have in our lives: friends, family, relationships with ourselves and, more personally, her changing relationship with music.

After self-producing her new album, Jodie enlisted Oli Deakin (CMAT, Elanor Moss, Benjamin Francis Leftwich) for mixing and Katie Tavini (Arlo Parks, Liz Lawrence, Sega Bodega) for mastering. From infectious, anthemic tracks like Another Frequency and You Wanted This, to more spacious, melancholic tracks like Love I’m On Fire and What If I; ‘Safe Hands’ takes the listener on intimate journeys of minimalism and melancholy through to blooming, euphoric ends. Nicholson’s signature rich harmonies and ethereal, reed-like vocals remain a compelling constant.

Exploring themes of escapism, nostalgia, self-reflection and changes of heart, Nicholson leans on musical influences including Daughter, Matt Corby, The National, Warpaint, Lucy Rose and Laura Marling. There are also nods to her prog-rock upbringing and 80s inspired outros that wouldn’t sound out of place on the soundtracks to Drive and Stranger Things.
