Taken from her upcoming album The Real World, and recorded in the Mojave Desert in California at famed studio Rancho de la Luna with Lucinda Williams’ band Buick 6 and renowned guitarist Greg Leisz (Eric Clapton, Beck, Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris et al), Nobody’s No Better Than No One is saturated in desert vibes and the unmistakable Rancho sound. The studio’s sound is heard on records such as Mark Lanegan’s Bubblegum, Arctic Monkeys’ Humbug, or the Desert Sessions including work by PJ Harvey.
Stepping away a little further from the sound of her previous releases, the first taste of Hollick’s new work enters the world of desert blues and rock, the single and record heavily influenced by Gene Clark’s 1974 album No Other. Evidenced by the sonic landscape of the single that blends synths, affected vocals, dark percussion, lap-steel and crunching rock guitars. ‘Nobody’s No Better Than No One’ is a song written as a modern day anthem for the underdog and listeners can expect an album of songs that question the status quo.
