Nick Hakim – “Pour Another”

28 Feb

Nick Hakim

It’s been a while since we heard a song quite as onomatopoeic as “Pour Another”, the latest offering from 23 year old Nick Hakim, as it immediately evokes images of a glass of red tumbling from the bottle, shoes being kicked off and feet being rested on the coffee table. It’s a wonder it doesn’t let out an audible exhalation of relaxed relief as it begins.

Taken from his forthcoming debut album, Where Will You Go, it is a gorgeously stripped back tune of soft greys and misty whites. The percussion ebbs gently like a tide against rocks, as the caress of piano and guitars bob effortlessly on an ocean of warm vocals, glistening like sunlight catching the crest of the water’s rippling furrows.

“Pour Another” is smooth and soulful, a beautiful track to close a day with and it even comes with the added bonus of a ‘secret’ micro track at the end. A distant couple of minutes that gently crackles like an old vinyl record on your grandfather’s wind up gramophone as Nick’s far-away vocal rest wearily atop a sparse guitar sound.

    Looks like the same text you had for the Emily King post…think there’s a mixup here.

      You were quite right Ella. We’ve no idea what happened there.

      All fixed now though. Thanks for letting us know and we hope you enjoy the real words.
