Nick Hakim Sings for the Lonely on "Pour Another"

FADER PREMIERE

Nick Hakim’s sweet soul plays like hymns from the stuff of nightmares—broken hearts and desolation, mostly. On "Pour Another," the 23-year-old immediately recalls another lovelorn balladeer: Bon Iver. But while Justin Vernon captures woodsy isolation at its most austere, Hakim's melodic bent is more urban, a dingy underbelly of big city grime and even bigger heartache. It's one thing to be alone; it's quite another to be alone in a metropolis of millions. Here, Hakim offers up a whiskey-tinged "there, there" for anyone who's been drinking and thinking. "[It's] the musical backdrop for the intoxicated and lonely," he tells FADER. Cheers. Nick Hakim's debut album, Where Will We Go, is scheduled for release this spring.
