Download: Nina Sky – The Other Side EP
Twin sisters Natalie and Nicole Albino, better known as Nina Sky, gained national attention in 2004 for their radio hit “Move Ya Body” and their self-titled debut. As of August 2nd, they are at it again with the release for their free EP, The Other Side.
After a six-year hiatus and shedding two record labels (Universal Records and Polo Grounds Music) it is no surprise that the duo have altered their sound since Nina Sky. With The Other Side Nina Sky has stayed put at the pop end of the spectrum, but now the production that backs the sisters up is decidedly more electronic and their music has entered the dance/electro-pop realm. Although the separation between the sub-genres is minuscule, it’s easy to distinguish Nina Sky’s new sound on The Other Side. There is nothing as radio ready on The Other Side as their past hit “Move Ya Body,” but this EP is still full of up-tempo and catchy songs such as “The Other Side,” “You Ain’t Got It,” and “Beautiful People” that are sure to satisfy Nina Sky fans. For anyone not in Nina Sky’s target demographic, the real standouts are “Only You” and “You Ain’t Got It (remix)” due to their guest versus from rappers Naledge (of Kidz in the Hall) and Melo-X.
