NEMAHSIS – ” Eleven Achers “

Posted: December 17, 2022 in MUSIC

There’s a palatial poise to the ways in which Nemah Hasan lays herself bare. On “suicide,” she coos almost matter-of-factly, “I am a triple threat / Three nations want my head,” over the sparse yet lush folk-futurist balladic bedrock of her debut EP — named after the 11-acre farm in Milton, ON, where she grew up. The Palestinian-Canadian’s crucial voice is one that captures you with an unflinching confidentiality that recalls Mustafa’s landmark “When Smoke Rises”, as well as the chilling ability to orchestrate closeness and distance — and cinematically pan the lens between the two — that’s all Hasan’s own.
