    It’s an assured and at times impressive debut for a blonde determined to have some fun with her image and her music.

    Peroxide showcases Nesbitt's sweet voice and personal yet universally relatable lyrics, which she frames in bright, often acoustic piano and guitar-driven arrangements.

    Her Scots brogue addresses the issue of “who you’ll be one day” with husky urgency, yoked to jaunty jangle-rock and prancing piano-pop which doesn’t anchor her in too parochial a terrain, giving Peroxide a broad appeal potentially akin to Ellie Goulding.

    There are no profound statements here, and no musical innovation.
  5. Feb 18, 2014
    Largely, though, Nesbitt's teenage insights are buried in functional, anodyne pop music.
  6. Feb 14, 2014
    If this is peroxide, it’s a heavily diluted solution; there’s certainly nothing caustic here, and scant evidence to suggest, as she protests to be the case on the title track, that there’s anything burning in her heart.
  7. 30
    The debut album from half-Scottish, half-Swedish songwriter Nina Nesbitt is pop so sugary it’ll rot your teeth.

    Why isn’t Nina Nesbitt famous enough? She has potential to be one.

    Nina Nesbitt is a pop star who wouldn’t sell herself. She may be pretty
    but all she wants is that people should listen to the lyrics and that’s what she wanted to do in this record. You see, that’s what makes an artist attractive. You don’t sell how pretty you are, but how musically talented you are. That’s why Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Lorde etc. had big following from fans even though these artists don’t follow the standards of being handsome or beautiful in the music business. Nina Nesbitt is also one of these artists, but people should give her more credit because she is actually really pretty.

    However, this debut record also comes with its own faults. The biggest problem this album suffered is a lack of direction. It’s just a collection of songs she wanted to present but it’s not enough. You had to have a bit of element of storytelling in the tracklist to make an album memorable.

    Now for the good side. The lyrics she wrote sounded like she is the female version of Ed Sheeran, which is a complement by the way. And the mix of folk and synthpop in this album is very interesting and catchy.

    Overall, while this debut record could have been better, Perodixe is a good kick-start to Nina Nesbitt’s musical career. I hope she makes a better sophomore album and I hope people pay more attention to her because Nina Nesbitt is a really good artist.

    Sounds like the biggest cover of Youtube, which is not a bad thing.
    "Peroxide" will not stop the UK, maybe be not the best written, the most
    innovative, but Nina is good for the ears. Expand
