“I only want you when I’m wasted,” sings jazz pop songstress Nikki Yanofsky on her red hot new single “Miss You When I’m Drunk,” a song that reminds me of the late Amy Winehouse with its soulfulness and lively tempo.  The big difference here is that there isn’t any grit to Nikki’s voice.  Instead, her vocals are super pretty and sugary.  Wyclef produced this one, as well as the rest of her Solid Gold EP, which drops on 10/28.  Here’s hoping it’s released on vinyl because her voice has precisely that classic sound that would sound perfect in the grooves.

    Listened to several of her tracks on Soundcloud after listening to this one. She’s a truly gifted artist. You should interview her for sure.
