Nina Nesbitt wrote many songs before releasing this first album. The deluxe version offers us nothing less than 20 songs from the young Scottish singer. All are based mostly on acoustic guitar in a pop-rock style.
The album alterns balads and catchy tunes like the single Selfies. My favourites apart form this one are Peroxide - the opening song that gave its title to the album, Stay Out, 18 Candles, The Outcome, Brit Summer, Don't Stop and the strong piano balad The People. Overall the album is rather up tempo and puts you in a good mood.
Nina's voice is really agreable, with a unique timbre particularly adapted to rock. The lyrics of her songs are either fun or moving, but always come across as natural, just like her music. The whole album is very coherent, and despite the fact all the songs are in the same style, they don't ressemble one another. Most of them are catchy right from the first listening and are easily recognisable.
An album that is never boring and that I'd highly recommend. If you like Selfies, you'll love the entire opus.
