“…melodies fit for the soul and written from the heart…” - Earmilk
Ambient-electronic artist Nick Wilson prepares to immerse listeners with his celestial collection of alt-pop vignettes. His upcoming EP A Face I’ve Never Seen Before is out on 2nd August 2019.
Beginning with previously released singles Let Me Hold You and Colour Me In, the EP entrances instantly. Wilson’s trademark ability to combine sleek, sweeping electronics with honeyed vocals are at the forefront, instantly reminiscent of the likes of Astronomyy and Aquilo. His upcoming single Carry Your Light is an evocative ballad laden with emotion from the off-set, creating an undeniably calming blend of soul-tinged pop that is bound to pull at the heartstrings.
Talking about the EP, Wilson elaborates “A Face I’ve Never Seen Before is the first EP I’ve released in 4 years. It’s a culmination of writing non-stop and figuring out exactly what type of music I wanted to be making. I wrote all four tracks with Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway (Lewis Capaldi, Gabrielle Aplin) over the course of 2 years. We never had the intention of releasing these songs as a body of work when we started writing, but once we had all the songs together they just made sense. They all have a central theme - human connection, and the feelings that develop between relationships, but each song explores a different emotion.”
Having grown up within an incredibly musical family, Nick has always had the desire to create from an early age. As a result, he’s successfully released and self-produced his own music for the past six years. Previous singles including Bare, In Your Eyes, All The Same, Get Up, Let Me Hold You and and his latest single Colour Me In have received acclaim from the likes of Clash, Earmilk, The Line Of Best Fit and Spindle Magazine. Nick has also supported Saint Raymond and Martin Luke Brown, as well as Gabrielle Aplin at her sold out Shepherd’s Bush show. With over 900,000 Spotify monthly listeners, Nick has also been featured on a number of Spotify’s editorial playlists including New Music Friday UK and Morning Commute to name a few. With A Face I’ve Never Seen Before, Wilson looks set to take 2019 by storm with his heartfelt collection of dreamy electronics.
