Track: Jodie Nicholson – Another Frequency

Ellen Dixon

North East songwriter & producer Jodie Nicholson has shared her new single ‘Another Frequency’, taken from her brand new album ‘Safe Hands’ due later this year via Quiet Crown / Absolute. In conjunction with this release, the Newcastle-based artist has also announced her biggest headline show to date at The Glasshouse ICM in Gateshead on Saturday 18th May 2024, before embarking on a headline tour across the UK this June.

Nicholson comments:

“‘Another Frequency’ is about not knowing whether to leave a relationship or not, feeling like you and the other person are on totally different pages and finding solace in solo-drives in your car to unravel the situation.

Sam and I wrote it in Summer 2021 at The Howl & The Hum’s studio in York. Production-wise this one stumped me for a long time and it wasn’t until a week before heading into the studio that it finally started to come together. Sam joined me one afternoon at Blank. We spent time shaping the track with bass and as soon as he sang on it, the whole track came to life. It was like the last piece of the puzzle had finally been added. My favourite part of the recording process, as well as Sam adding his parts, was experimenting with a radio I found on a shelf in Blank and using sections of me flicking through the channels to book-end the track. It feels like a sonic reflection of overthinking.”

A smooth and sultry vibe matches Nicholson’s vocals for their seductiveness. The track gradually blooms as the beat becomes more insistent and Sam Griffiths joins her on vocals. The track is a showcase in atmospheric songwriting, with Nicholson’s vocals being the shining light. The slow building of the track will eventually stop you from what you were doing and you will find yourself lost in its swirling sonic brilliance.
