The second time I listened to the opening track on Nolan’s super-hot release for the likewise Soul Clap imprint was just to make sure it sounded as brilliant on repeat. It did. I love music that’s feels this special, which sounds as if it’s located in its own dimension, which doesn’t seek to sound like everything else out there. Go, which features the deliriously, smouldering vocals of Forrest does all those things as uncomplicated drums, hits of guitar and emotive, swirling pads fill out the spaces in-between. It is a song too and one which doesn’t regurgitate Disco (relief). Which leads me onto Standing On My Own Tower that for some reason reminds me of Eno’s outstanding vocals from the 1970’s and is accompanied by the sort of heart-tearing music that doesn’t come cheap. Tell Me, washes over you in a breath of harmonious voices, while Would Be completes via chiming rhythms along with yet more words of meaning from Forrest.
Release: August 31
