This emotionally driven track takes you on a musical road trip yet again showcasing Nathan’s extraordinary vocals. Playing a delightfully inventive brand of indie/pop, Nathan and band mates clearly showcase that there is something a little different about their sound.
Speaking on the track, Nathan says: I wrote Cold Hands at the end of last year, tucked away down in Cornwall. I get influenced by the seasons a lot and winter had properly settled in so there was certainly an element of intensity and darkness creeping into the writing. It’s about lost love and new opportunities… I’d been listening to The National a lot at the time and became pretty obsessed with the honesty they were pouring into their lyrics, so I think there was a bit of a nod to them in the process. I demo’d the track with Max (guitarist) and we took it to Ian Grimble ((Manic Street Preachers, Daughter, Bear’s Den) who we’d recorded Right Place with last year. Ian gave the track the space and tension I think it needed and I’m really happy with how it came out.
Nathan has already received strong tastemaker and radio support around his debut single “Right Place” including BBC Intro, Radio X and R1 Playlist, along with just under a million streams. 2017 is set to be a amazing year for Nathan, with continue support at Radio and Streaming platforms, his career goes from strength to strength.
Last year’s touring season saw Nathan opening for Laura Marling and Bombay Bicycle Club, playing festivals (Boardmasters, The Great Escape, Secret Garden Party, Camp Bestival and Boomerang) and selling out headline shows across the UK and Europe.
This summer he’s back on the road, kicking off a run of dates in Europe with Matthew and The Atlas throughout February. After a string of shows in the Channel Isles, Nathan returns to the UK in March to play his biggest headliner show to date at London’s OMEARA on March 15th, with lots more to follow.
