Nina Nastasia UK tour dates‏...

Announces three intimate UK shows.

‘Beautifully judged and as haunting as the penny-dreadful artwork, Outlaster’s songs are once more torn from a remarkable songwriting mind.’ **** Mojo

“This is a record full of space and intimacy, drawing the listener completely into its black-and-blue world. Let her stories into your life, and they will never leave you. After all, Nastasia’s talent is to snare those who find her, and never let them go.’ Jude Rogers, BBC Music

‘Maximum dark-hearted drama.’ The Independent

Live in March / April
Saturday 31st March - Howard Assembly Room, Leeds

Monday 2nd April - The Macbeth, London

Tuesday 3rd April - Whelan’s, Dublin

Nina Nastasia flies into the UK and Ireland to perform three solo shows later this month, the first for Opera North in Leeds, followed by London and Dublin dates, performing selected material from her entire catalogue.

Often described as “lean”, “sparse”, “delicate”, these adjectives do not capture the spirit of her most recent long-player. Recorded with Steve Albini, ‘Outlaster’ (FatCat, 2010) is a work of gothic beauty and lush sophistication that, with no loss of distinction or economy, transcends the reach of Nastasia’s famed spareness. Nina is an artist of pervasive, quiet influence currently undergoing a sea change in musical form and her work continues to startle and intrigue even Nina Nastasia obsessives. Laura Marling finds in her ‘…a kind of openness I admire. You know she’s not going to break down at any moment, and there’s something very empowering about that’. She is, to quote Interview Magazine, “the rare artist who creates a new form from which others will copy.”
