With her lucid, radiant vocal taking centre stage, the release of Nectar Woode’s ‘Good Vibrations’ acts as the perfect introduction to an artist steeped in soul and warmth. Co-written and produced with Bad Sounds (Arlo Parks, Rose Gray), the single is four minutes of pure positivity, born from a classic Nectar jam session and sung with an audible smile.
For fans of Olivia Dean and Cleo Sol, the 24-year-old London based singer-songwriter of English and Ghanaian heritage has honed and developed her sound as part of the supportive South London neo-soul community in recent years, which is beautifully represented in the accompanying music video, directed by Paddy Cartwright & Joel Barney.
Speaking about the single, Woode explains, “This song transports me to childhood moments with my close friends. That innocent feeling of being surrounded by your favourite people and in that time you’re laughing, dancing, messing around, spreading love and immaculate vibes with one another. I went into the session with Bad Sounds with this in mind and after playing around with chords on the piano and guitar ‘Good Vibrations’ was the result.”
