She Said is the type of track that makes you do a little skip on the walk to work, only to realise that you’re in public before attempting to style it out into a stumble or fake dogshit dodge (what, just me then?).
Everything about this tune screams summer, which it most certainly isn’t here in Prague, but at least the heating’s on. The vocals are gorgeous and the beat carries an understated yet infectious groove. The melodies are sublime, all twinkling, rippling high sounds and 90s-esque stabs. The bass hints at something darker, which is typical of much of Nuage’s work, but She Said is a beautiful little oasis of feel-good factor. Listen to this on repeat and you can almost smell the ocean from your imaginary beach recliner…
Russian-based Nuage is a Praguebeats favourite. Check out more of his tunes on his Soundcloud page and check out his brilliant Five Minute Interview from last year! The She Said EP was released on French label Roche Musique in November and can be downloaded from Beatport.
