The Independent

After parting ways with a major label, Nesbitt is back with her second LP, switching to a brand of soul and R&B-fused pop that feels bang on time, and suits her far better.


She’s almost there, just a few more seasons.

The Line of Best Fit

The reason she is able to turn her hand to such a breadth of sounds is that her fundamental talent as a songwriter and musician is undeniable.


At 13 tracks, and the more forgettable ones clustered in the second half, the album could have benefitted from some trimming, but it ends elegantly, with a reassuring title track that seems to promise further growth.

The Skinny

While it may not be the collection of hits we were hoping for, The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change is a little like a compilation of musical diary entries sprinkled with newly learnt wisdom: it’s fun, it’s new, and it’s Nesbitt's coming-of-age moment.

I was really hyped for this but sadly the best songs were all released as singles and the remaining tracks felt dull in comparison. Still some great moments in Nina's very honest and straightforward writing that I really appreciate. The title track is easily my fave on this
'The Sun Will Come Up, the Seasons Will Change' is quite a strong effort!

"The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change" is a piece of pop with solid and visible attempts on fitting the current music market, but it's not something to worry about, this work still sounds direct and intimate, creating an empowering and melancholic atmosphere at the same time. I agree with Tsareena's sentence about the new tracks feeling dull, so much about this release was so messed up, but I guess Nina has managed to pull out a great album. It's really a big step up from ... read more
The singles were the best, other than it was a bit forgettable.
Tinha tudo para ser um ótimo trabalho: a produção é boa, a voz dela é boa, a ordem das faixas é boa. Mas, as músicas são tão sem sal, mais ainda as que estão perto do final do álbum. Muito potencial, espero próximos trabalhos. Esse é okay.

Melhores faixas: Loyal to Me, Love Letter e Empire.
