Nicki Wells is a classically trained and gifted vocalist. The singer-songwriter has a cosmic soul from which she wrenches out the most tearing and touching performances. In her new single, I’ve Longed To Be Here, Nicki Wells puts on a transcendental performance. She is known for her role as vocalist in Nitin Sawhney’s band and has performed in prestigious venues like London’s Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, and Glastonbury’s main Puramid Stage!
The quality of the composition is the first thing that stands out. Its profound emotional sensibilities emerge from the depth of the soul, from intimate spaces and memorials residing within the psyche. Nicki’s vocals command the space with lavish melancholy. Rooted in spiritual and ritualistic styles, the expression is one that is not of this world. The river of vocals flows with moaning cellos and shimmering synths. It is supernatural and yet the most human thing ever. A swirling mist that expands the known and expounds it with the unknown.
The song is a hypnotic portrayal of finally finding what you yearned for. The artist largely draws from emotions like melancholy, devotion, struggle, passion, and weaves them with a strange sense of divinity. With a high cinematic appeal and performative prowess, the track stands strong, clarifying all the artist’s previous accolades. She has vocally contributed to several numbers in films like Andy Serkis’s Mowgli, Deepa Mehta’s Midnight’s Children, and Renny Harlin’s The Legend of Hercules!
The track is available on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
