Born in a little village outside Edinburgh, Nesbitt's musical education was a long and
constantly evolving one. Fully immersed in chart pop thanks to her Swedish mother –
think lots of ABBA, Britney, Christina, Whitney – that was then mixed later with the
more outré leanings of her father, specifically Brian Eno. Closeted in her little village, it
took her friends to break her out of a fairly dark early obsession. “My friend at school
told me to stop listening to Basshunter and start listening to Nirvana, so she introduced
me to the rock world,” she laughs. Later, after moving to London, her musical horizons
were exploded more and more. “I really got into R&B all of a sudden, and I just love how
Lauryn Hill, Bryson Tiller and Kehlani communicate things about their life. It's like I
know who they are when I'm listening to their songs. So I wanted to represent that in my
music too.”
