Nina Kohout – ETEP [SK]

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. In 2020, Nina won the Radio_Head award for the Newcomer of the Year (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 BBC Radio and music magazines such as Under the Radar, Louder than War, and Electronic Sound magazine. Her past shows include playing at the Kino Šiška in Ljubljana, the United Islands of Prague, the Ahoi! Pop Festival in Linz, as well as the biggest Slovak festival Pohoda. At the beginning of 2023, Nina performed at the biggest European showcase festival Eurosonic, where together with a string quintet, she presented her uniquely coloured art pop.
Her music connects the eerie atmosphere of ancient Slovak folklore, classical music elements, and the freshness of innovative electronica. 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.
