Single Review: Nell Davies – Repeat After Me

Nell Davies is an indie singer/songwriter and guitarist, who is based in the west of Cornwall. Her music is a DIY production, and she actually records all of her music in a converted pigsty on her property, near Penzance. Nell talks about how this indie pop song is about being replaced, that moment when someone you like, starts liking someone else. It is inspired by The Parent Trap, Twin Peaks and Fight Club, and features Nell’s ‘evil twin’. The music video for the track, which you can check out here, was filmed at a remote Victorian folly in the wee hours of the morning. So, today we will be discussing ‘Repeat After Me’ which was released on 30th September 2022. 

‘Repeat After Me’ opens with a nice percussive beat, backed up by jaunty strings, and Davies vocals, the opening really builds up well, a staccato melody that works really well. Especially considering the context of the track, the almost call and response feel of the music and the vocals is really clever. I’m a big fan of songs that are sort of offbeat and a little different and this track certainly fulfills that criteria. I think what was most impressive for me, was that it’s quite an instrumentally simple track, and yet it’s got a lot of intermixed beats and the structure really builds on itself. I thoroughly enjoyed this track, and I am legitimately excited to hear more from Davies in the future. 

So that’s what I thought of Nell Davies single ‘Repeat After Me’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify. While you’re at it, make sure and support the artist by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
