Self Destructive Mind
Already recognized as one of the most influential musicians in Israel, Ninet was determined to bring her distinctive sound overseas. The acclaimed singer/songwriter is arguably the biggest entertainment figure in her country. Over a decade ago, the aspiring artist first found success by winning “Israeli Idol.” Her debut album took less than a day to go platinum and yielded five #1 singles.
Ninet is a two-time winner of Israel’s “Favorite Music Act” at MTV Europe Music Awards and a celebrated actress- she was nominated for Best Actress in the 2010 Israeli Theater Awards.
Last year, Ninet put out her fifth album (her second English-speaking record) Paper Parachute – a collection of gritty rock that made ripples in the States and picked up plaudits from Rolling Stone and NPR for whom she performed as part of the legendary Tiny Desk concert series. Spurned by that reception, more ideas were pouring out of her, influenced by new surroundings and experiences and people which lead to the creation of the new single “Self Destructive Mind” – a tumultuous, introspective ripper.
“Ninet’s new track, “Self Destructive Mind,” leads you on a journey from mental turmoil to eventual peace. Starting soft and simple, the song builds into a vibrant work that showcases her unique Israeli, singer-songwriter sound. Her voice has a powerful and husky timbre that makes listening to it similar to the smokey feeling of a glass of Bourbon running down your throat: powerful at first, but settles into a warming feeling. The use of instruments like the cello and accordion produce a lush combination that work in harmony to create a cinematic quality to the song.” Ones To Watch
