Wasted Days by Nahima 🛁 EP Review


         

Written by Tia


In Nahima's EP Wasted Days, she takes listeners on a honey-smooth journey from one harmony to the next with her catchy vocal melodies and blended production.

Each of the three songs ("Out of Shape," "Like Me Alone," and "Try My Luck") showcases a slightly different mix of chill pop, R&B, and folk influences, which all do well to complement Nahima's light, layered vocals. While the instrumental production is lovely on all three songs, the vocal production is what really ties together the EP—which says good things for Nahima's flexibility as a vocalist, as well as her potential for growth as a new artist.

Somehow, Wasted Days feels like the perfect album for both a relaxing afternoon and a late night drive. If only there were more songs!

In the 101st episode of No Improvement, we discuss episode 13 of season 3 of The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu. Lucky, lucky June has some explosive success despite her constant, blatant recklessness, and we get to see a beautiful scene with all of the characters we like.

We're excited for everything to come in season 4, thanks to a great setup from the finale. Things are about to get crazy in the plot, and if June continues saving kids, then it may be true for her that the ends justify the means.

In two weeks, we will be watching, talking about, and reviewing the first season of Mindhunter, in preparation for its second season, which came out on August 16, 2019.
