I would like to go to Canada
I have never been there before
All of the traveling that I have done
I don't know what I am looking for

Do you have a friend in New York?
Is she fighting for your art?
There are things I haven't told you
I know it keeps us apart

I am reaching out to you
God is on our side
It is all that you ever talk about
Coming home, home to the other side

You called it sentimentality
You called it intrigue
All of the knowing that I have done
I don't know what you mean

I wanna feel good again
I wanna feel right, right, right
Come on over closer to me
I'm letting you inside

I am lonely for you in Norway
I am lonely for you in Spain
Could you hold me in the darkness?
Would you tell the world my name?

Oh, I am reaching out for something
God is on our side
I wanna feel good again
I wanna feel right, right, right

I would like to go to Canada
I would like to go there with you
All of the loving that I have done
I don't know what I am waiting for

Drums, bass, guitar & sax lay down a tasty groove and let her voice shine. I like.

This song is very Canadian in its earnestness. 
Gorgeous 😊
Oh, dude, turn this one up really loud. Trust me.

Definitely there are echoes of Aldous in some of the melody flows, and pronunciation idios.. Agree :)


I always think it's Aldous! I like them both!

I'm hearing some Aldous Harding in here. Is there such a thing as a "New Zealand" sound? Nice tune.

Had to check it wasn’t Aldous Harding…
What a great voice she has! She has the power and yet can restrain the vibrato from going too far... So truly gifted, and bold! Really nice guitar playing, as well. Thanks, RP for the turn-on!

What I want to know is, how does Bill do it?



A VAST knowledge of what's out there - both popular and obscure. Or  - and this is more likely - he's a Magician

I see what you mean; to my ears this is a bit more "muscular" and lyrically less wilfully obscure.

Magic?  Hundreds of staff?  Algorithms.?

We will never know. 

 
Very interesting, playing this after Wittgenstein's Arm, where Canada gets discussed in the comments.  Coincidence, or DJ's subtle sense of humor?
Canada is the best.
Better with every listen, Oh Nadia lets have more.
Wonderful voice. Yes we are happy to have you play here in Canada!
yep I really love hearing this song… Brilliant use of her voice and the production gas a really great 70s vibe to me

Bill > any algorithm.  That's my equation.
Thanks Bill.
Here is the live version, even better live
I really enjoy her voice.

A "7" on first listen here - another RP discovery!




German here, and I know Nadia since 2016. I possess  her three albums on CD.  They are easily to get here in Europe. And they got very positive reviews.
Of course such music isn't played on normal German radio stations. As far as I remember she was a spotify discovery. One of many.

Yet another great find from Bill and Rebecca.  This is the exciting thing about RP.  What a voice!🙂👍👏

Her music is played on bFM - Auckland student radio.
