Nieve Ella shares first single of 2024 ‘The Things We Say’

Amidst the UK music scene, one name continues to captivate both newcomers and devoted fans alike: Nieve Ella. Following the resounding success of her 2023 EP, Lifetime of Wanting, featuring hit singles ‘Car Park’ and ‘His Sofa,’ and a sold-out debut headline tour this February, rising West-Midlands songwriter and guitarist Nieve Ella is poised to continue her impressive rise in 2024. Now, she shares her new single ‘The Things We Say’ out now on AWAL Recordings.

Winning over a slew of devout fans with her potent indie-pop confessionals, seamlessly melded with the ambiance of 90’s guitar, Nieve Ella’s latest single, ‘The Things We Say,’ marks an evolved next step. As comfortable in her own skin as one can be at 21 years old, her new single is simultaneously heavy and light yet dense and playful.

Collaborating with producer Iain Berryman (Beabadoobee, Young Fathers, Wolf Alice) and co-writer Joel Pott (Joy Crookes) she continues to demonstrate her knack for pairing knockout choruses with potent elements of her broader indie-pop palette. Frothy crash cymbals and slanted guitar lines lay the architecture for Ella’s distinctive raspy vocal, as she navigates the complex feelings of a platonic fallout.

Speaking about her new single, Ella explains, “I wrote ‘The Things We Say’ after an argument with a best friend. These conversations can be painful at the best of times, but even more so when it’s with someone you love deeply. Expanding further, Ella describes her evolved approach to songwriting: “Being able to write something so raw and honest, and not being afraid to express how I feel, has made me feel strong and empowered.”
