Event Details

“Nadine Khouri is a musician and songwriter currently based in London. Influenced by dream-pop, film soundtracks and spoken-word, her sound has been described as a “music born of perennial outsider-status.”

Recorded live with producer John Parish (PJ Harvey) at Toybox Studios in his hometown Bristol, her new album ‘The Salted Air’ is a haunting and atmospheric collection of poetic meditations on loss and transformation. Khouri’s singular voice soars above droning organ, pulsating shakers, and an occasional choir of male voices, creating a self-contained world, reminiscent of Stina Nordenstam and Mazzy Star in their heyday. Pumping harmoniums meld into reverb-drenched electric guitar, while Khouri’s languid voice offers a dream-like incantation set against a beating Moroccan tar on Broken Star.  The album also features guest contributions from Parish, Irish singer-songwriter Adrian Crowley, violinist Emma Smith (James Yorkston, Seamus Fogarty) bassist Huw Bennett (Susso) and others.

‘The Salted Air’ was listed among Rough Trade’s ‘Albums of the Month’ upon release & garnered highly favourable reviews in MOJO, Brooklyn Vegan, Clash, Q, R2, Folk Radio, and more.”
