Anita Nicole caught our attention with her debut EP Ecstasy, and now the BRIT School for Performing Arts alumna has returned with her second EP entitled The Other Side. We have already floated two of the EP's five tracks past your grateful ears in the last couple of months. "Patience" is a soulful house flavored track, while "Gone" is a groove-driven house music gem, with a healthy dose of soul to top it off. The good news is that Anita adds new flavors and directions to her already burgeoning palette with the other three songs on display here.
"Dedication" is a somber slice of reflective electro soul that highlights Anita's mellifluous vocals, so short that it leaves you yearning for more and adding new angles to the lyrical content. Shimmering guitars open up and underpin "Love That We Found," a mid-tempo lament of broken-heartedness, that once again showcase Anita's vocal talents beautifully. The final tune, "Yours," finds the impressive Anita imploring her lover to take her back after her desire to take things slowly caused a break in their relationship. Minimal chilled percussion is added to by a pounding bass drum to create a more dance floor-influenced track.
This EP shows Anita's musical path developing further and heading down new roads creating a melange of different sounds and styles, leading us to think she has bigger and better things ahead of her. The Other Side can be downloaded from her SoundCloud page right now.
