London based singer and guitarist Nadia Sheikh's single “Toxic” is a piece of indie music magic.
Nadia's timeless but edgy indie rock style is infectious and bold in equal measure.
Having proven she really understands how to blend rock and pop to great effect, the finished result is a vibrant and pulsating track set to leave listener craving more of the same.
"The song is about a personal experience with an illness after being affected by black mould and having to cope with and get out of the situation"
"After going through everything I had the word 'Toxic' stuck in my head. Although I'm very outgoing, I don't share my emotions much, so I think writing this song was a way of releasing and letting go of a bit of that weight."
Nadia wrote the song and it was produced by Nigel Walker. The track is self-released and it was mainly recorded at The Mixroom in London.
Aged just 14 at the time, the half-Spanish, half-British artist’s musical endeavours began following the offer of a development deal from EMI Spain after winning their public prize competition. She released her first EP at 17.
