Nina Kohout is a 20 year old Slovak artist currently based in the UK, where she’s just finished her studies at the notorious The BRIT School. Last year, Nina won the Radio_Head award for the Newcomer of the Year 2020 (curated by the Slovak national radio), which she received for her debut single Blue Sunray. Her critically acclaimed debut EP Pandemonium (incl. the song Moonlight featured as the Song of the Day by KEXP Radio) got Nina’s name mentioned in the BBC Radio and music magazines such as Under the Radar, Louder than War, and Electronic Sound magazine. In 2022, Nina played at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, the iconic Kino Šiška in Ljubljana, the United Islands of Prague, the Ahoi! Pop Festival in Linz, as well as the biggest Slovak festival Pohoda, and she supported acts such as Lola Marsh, Cathy Davey, and múm. At the beginning of 2023, Nina played at the biggest European showcase festival Eurosonic, where together with a string quintet she introduced her uniquely coloured chamber pop. 

Her music connects the eerie atmosphere of ancient Slovak folklore, classical music elements, and the freshness of an innovative trip-hop. Subsequently, she creates her own timeless, rather strange, and anarchic musical world. Nina Kohout is a sonic storyteller who pushes the boundaries of musical obedience, forming a constant conversation between an invasive horror and a fragile purity.
