British Singer/Songwriter’s Album Inspired by Refugee Flow in Greece

Nadine Shah, from Whitburn, South Tyneside, in the northeast of England, has taken the inspiration for her third LP release Holiday Destination from migrants and refugees who have fled to Greece after seeing people complain about it ruining their break.

The 10-track album follows on from debut Love Your Dum and Mad in 2013 and Fast Food, which was issued in 2015. Nadine, who now lives in London, said the title track is “A response to this really harrowing news piece about migrants and refugees arriving on the shores of Kos in Greece by the thousands.”

She added: “There were some holidaymakers being interviewed and they were talking about how the situation was ruining their holiday. “Despite their total and complete lack of empathy the thing which shocked me most was their bold and unashamed stance of saying such things on national television.

The album is released by 1965 Records and is available to buy now. In addition to an in-store gig at Rough Trade’s East London store, Nadine has set out on a 12-date tour to showcase her new work.
