MAM Song of the Week: Nadia Sheikh – ‘Break Free’

Song Of The Week

Nadia Sheikh has dropped her second single of 2019, with new release ‘Break Free’. The single follows on from ‘Toxic’ which was released early in the year and was a Modern Age Music Song of the Week back in January.

Fred Perry Subculture described Nadia Sheikh as “a genre chameleon with a voice that warms the soul”, and it is difficult to disagree with that statement. ‘Break Free’ shows a different side to Nadia’s song writing, and acts as the perfect platform to showcase an intoxicating vocal performance.

True to her indie-rock roots, the track builds into a powerful lead guitar break, and at almost 4 and a half minutes in length, it’s a wonderful roller-coaster of atmospheric pop and guitar rock.

Nadia says of the single: “It’s a song about realising you’ve become part of what you hated. Feeling like you’re sick into a society that you don’t belong and expressing the feeling of wanting to break fee.”

Nadia Sheikh is currently on a UK and Spain tour, with all information at
