Jamsphere Independent Music Magazine review of ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’

Nicki Kris: ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’ – a suggestive and voluptuous soundscape!

…”Nicki’s uniquely lovely voice has almost always been unbelievably moving; her very subtle inflections, powerful and intricate lyrics, emotionally precise delivery, adding fuel to the artistic fire. Now with ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’, the musical arrangement is more colorful and complexly layered, a sumptuous vocal melody abounds, while Nicki’s – both earthy yet angelic voice – and the understated synth strings give this track an almost unbearable poignancy. The suggestive and voluptuous soundscape of ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’, serves not only to highlight Nicki Kris’ truly gifted songwriting and lyricism but stands as a showcase for the full expression and emotion this singer is capable of. ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’, given more than the cursory two plays, will begin to reveal a subtle and understated beauty and elegance rarely found in a music industry intent on mass marketing, radio play singles and lyrics you pick up on first listen. Nicki’s turn into more introspective electronic music on this single, suits her well. The haunting beauty of the track evokes something familiar. Hearing ‘You’ve Got A Hold On Me’ is like discovering a secret that was first whispered to you long ago. You can tell Nicki Kris and (producer / co-writer) Kevin McNoldy invested a great deal of effort, emotion, energy, and feeling into this song.” Read Moreā€¦
