The first thing you think of when hearing On Ice by Nina K. is that she creates fine pop music that is made to whistle along. Music that doesn’t torture you soul, but looks can be deceiving! Nina’s lyrics are not exactly light (for example how you process the death of a child), even though her music never feels as such.

Most of the times, her songs sound quite light, and that is no doubt due to the production of Alex Dromgoole (who previously worked with Björk and Jessie Ware) and Daniel Fagge Fagerstrom, who added a lot of dreamy synths as coproducer.

The new age-like title perfectly matches this album of Nina K. (whose full name is actually Nina Kinert). On Ice is certainly not a classic album. It's fun, but it relies a bit too much on Nina's majestic voice, that can be situated somewhere between Enya and Maia Vidal.

Het eerste wat je denkt als je Nina K. hoort, is dat het om leuke popmuziek gaat die gemaakt is om lekker mee te fluiten. Muziek waarvoor je je ziel voor één keer niet moet tormenteren, maar schijn bedriegt! Nina's teksten zijn niet bepaald licht (bijv. het verwerken van het overlijden van een kind), ook al voelt de muziek nooit zo aan.

De tracks klinken bij momenten bijzonder licht, en dat komt zonder twijfel door de productie van Alex Dromgoole (die samenwerkte met Björk en Jessie Ware) en Daniel Fagge Fagerstrom die er als coproducer nog een heleboel zweverige synths bijgooide.

De new age-achtige titel past perfect bij dit album van Nina K. (die eigenlijk voluit Nina Kinert heet). On Ice is zeker geen uitschieter, maar een aangename plaat die net iets te veel puurt uit Ninas magistrale stem en die zich ergens tussen Enya en Maia Vidal bevindt.
