Nicole Atkins Unveils New Video For “Domino”: BUST Premiere

by Michael Levine

Nicole Atkins just released the music video for her new track, “Domino,” off her upcoming album Italian Ice. This new track has a funky R&B feel and rolls along with a cool, indie rock vibe. Atkins’ throaty vibrato floats over it all effortlessly as she sings, “Tme is up. This message will self destruct. Hey, hey, hey, hey, look out below. Watch ’em fall like dominos.”

The video was directed by Taylor McFadden. “Domino is an homage to the iconic opening scene to Saturday Night Fever, mixed with Nicole’s Italian roots in Asbury Park and that boardwalk soul,” McFadden says.

On Italian Ice, the New Jersey-bred singer/songwriter draws inpiration from a place especially close to her heart: the Jersey Shore, in all its scrappy beauty. Inspired by the New Jersey boardwalk and the Asbury Park rock ’n’ roll scene she played a key part in reviving, Atkins brings all of these influences to life by creating her own sonic landscape. Italian Ice was co-produced by Atkins and Ben Tanner of Alabama Shakes and recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama. It will be available from Single Lock Records on May 29. Watch Atkins perform live on BUST’s IGTV today, April 9, at 2:00 EST, and for more info on Italian Ice please visit her website.
