Brighton’s finest Nature TV lead us on a twilight stroll down by the shore with ‘Hey Man’.
The quartet have long cracked the indie-pop code, providing us with a mixture of retro synth and woozy sun-kissed harmonies remindful of the early works of Kisses. Having now earnt a rightful name for themselves down by the south coast, ‘Hey Man’ marks the groups return after the eminently praised ‘Lady Luck’ EP.
Much unlike its laidback instrumentation and soft touching notes courtesy of vocalist Guy Bangham, ‘Hey Man’s lyrical approach tackles unnerving thoughts surrounding the future (we’ve all been there, and at times it isn’t always pretty…)
Guy describes the track: “Hey Man is a song about wanting to know that the direction you’re going in life is the right one for you. Sometimes it feels like there are many things and many people in life who could lead you astray or tell you that you shouldn’t be following your passion. So this track is basically me trying to shut out all the noises and negative leeches out of my life and just keep on keeping on, even when it can be hard.”
As with all Nature TV releases – they radiate warmth. You’ve heard of “comfort shows”, well, this is “comfort music” and these four always seem to turn up at exactly the right time. Thanks, boys.
