Nicotine and Neon is a track that draws together the echoing rock of The Velvet Underground with the tremendous vocal range of Heart or Fleetwood Mac. With chugging guitar lines, on-point drums, and a thick, ropy bass line, Nicotine and Neon recalls 1960s and 1970s rock perfectly. Heather O’Neill’s vocals are unmatched during this single, both telling a story and contributing to the overall harmony of the cut. The track’s instrumentation and vocals combine to make something that will stick with listeners long after the last notes of Nicotine and Neon play.
The last time we checked out O’Neill was concerning her 2011 album, A Feminist Manifesto .
