British singer-songwriter Nick Wilson is primed to push his profile up to a new level with the release of his brand new single ‘Safe’ out now via Never Fade Records and featuring on Spotify’s New Music Friday UK.
Nick has become best known for his ambient-electronic, alt-pop but ‘Safe’marks a subtle shift in Nick’s style. The beguiling vocal and hand-on-heart emotional pull he articulated on previous fan favourites such as ‘Miles Apart’ maintains his most enticing attribute. Yet the production plays with a surfeit of fresh ideas supporting his heavenly vocal harmonies to the song’s stuttering, off-kilter beat. In short, it’s an artistic twist on everything that fans have come to love from him whilst maintaining his honest and vulnerable lyrics.
“I wrote Safe with writing duo The Nocturns. It was our first session together and we were talking about how as humans, we have the tendency to second guess ourselves, and work ourselves up about whatever is bringing us down. Safe became this song that acted almost as a reminder to myself that it’s usually never as bad as it seems. Sometimes we’re the ones making it worse, and in the end it’s always better to tackle it head on rather than play it safe” explains Nick.
