Nikki Lane – Denim & Diamonds

Releasedate:   2022
Label:  New West Records

Nikki Lane is a Singer Songwriter from the US. Currently she is releasing here fourth album called “Denim & Diamonds”, it is available now.

With a country base in the music Nikki brings in some rock and roll vibe, a bit more of a funky side and also a lot of heartfult emotions. The album gives you that from the beginning, a solid sound of a woman that knows what she want to tell and how. Some songs are a bit slow, for example “Faded” where she takes her time to share her words. Other tracks are more up like title track “Denim & Diamonds” but when she takes up the power just a bit more in “Black Widow” you find yourselfs with a highlight. Great guitars, straightforward sound… we like it.
Looking at the album as a whole it does come down to the fact that all is laying quite close to eachother. The range of songs is not straying to far from eachother, flocking up to a recognizable sound. Not much of a problem if you are deeply into the details, but for a play in the background this album may soon become a bit plain.

Nikki Lane made a release that is best listened with your full attention, not as much as one to have playing with company. Fine enough, it serves those who invest the time in it.
