New Sensation is the debut single written, performed and produced by Nakila. Influences include Kraftwerk, Human League, New Romantics, and Mark Ronson.
Composed by improvising on retro style synths, the structure draws on Western classical music. A ground bass repeats throughout the verses and in the closing bars of the chorus. Layered above this are three melodic lines including two instrumental parts in counterpoint. In the verses, the lyrics explore the nightmare of a meaningless existence in the twenty first century. The chorus is about the dream of a new way of looking at the world. But when the demons are trapped in your mind, how do you escape them?
Nakila is the virtual alter ego of artist and busker Phillipa Leigh.
