Nana Adjoa is the Dutch-Ghanaian singer-songwriter brimming with quiet confidence. Her new EP, Down at The Root (Part 2) combines the warm, musical simplicity of great song-craft, with the bold, multi-layered palette of artists such as Beck or Little Dragon.
Released today is the first track from the new EP “Honestly“, the follow up to the gorgeous Down at The Root (Part 1). The song is a self-described “outsider track” that grew from its simple piano backing into an altogether more vibey affair. “I didn’t even think it was going to make the record because it felt so different from the rest,” Nana says. “I guess it’s about how people are scared of the possibility of something bad happening. And that fear is really strange because you don’t know what’s going to happen. You never know what’s going to happen.” As Nana herself is proving – eventually you just have to let go.
