Slow Phaser sees Nicole Atkins diving deeper into her music while simultaneously opening her arms to the wide world. It’s a beautifully dark desert disco record. Nicole wrote the songs both on her own and with friend Jim Sclavunos of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Grinderman.
Produced by Tore Johannson - with whom she partnered on her now-classic 2007 debut, Neptune City - the album marks a milestone for the acclaimed singer/songwriter, her restless creativity and impassioned songcraft fully realized via the addition of some surprising colors to her already diverse paintbox.
Songs like the poptastic “Girl You Look Amazing” and the neon noir “Red Ropes” positively swirl with day-glo danceability, the bright hues setting Atkins’ distinctive creative voice in a brilliant and undeniable new light. Bittersweet yet life-affirming,Slow Phaser is Nicole Atkins at her confident and unpredictable best – spirited, sexy, and determinedly forward thinking.
“I wanted to make something that no one’s ever heard before,” she says, “including myself.”
