We review the new single from Nela’s Odyssey, Headlights
Manchester based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Antonia showcases her alias Nela’s Odyssey, with the release of her debut single in the form of ‘Headlights’, a haunting, evocative track that is destined to allow Antonia to leave her mark on the Manchester music scene.
Released via the independent record label, Someone Great Records, ‘Headlights’ was written by Antonia at the age of 17, when she was beginning to really discover herself. Starting off slow with touching and melancholic vocals, the acoustics begin to steadily build before blossoming with powerful percussion which hands itself to the mesmerising final chorus, ‘Headlights’ holds a fascinating ending which signifies there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Written about the relatable topic of not being able to find your place in the world and taking yourself on a soul-searching adventure, ‘Headlights’ takes inspiration from indie-folk tones that Antonia had grown up listening to.
From an early age, Antonia has been writing and performing her music and has played several shows in her hometown of Wrexham. With the release of ‘Headlights’, Antonia unveils Nela’s Odyssey and brings something unique to the table, nodding to the journey she has been on so far whilst giving new listeners something to seriously indulge in.
