Bombay Bicycle Club’s Ed Nash has resurfaced under his own name rather than his recent moniker Toothless, with a new song ‘Think You Feel The Same’, the first of a collection of new music to be released on his own Bangers & Nash imprint.
The song came with a personal press release explaining his decision and how he’s going to work moving forward.
It’s been some time since I’ve been in touch but I’ve got good news.
I’m going to start putting out tracks / EPs / albums frequently, as and when they are ready, and move away from putting out an album every few years like I have in the past.
After initially spending some time writing and recording a follow-up to the first Toothless album, I realised I wanted to do things differently. The music I was writing felt increasingly more personal, both lyrically and sonically than the music I put out under Toothless. Labouring over a record for years no longer feels productive for what I’m doing, where I want to just write songs and get them out to you as quickly as possible.
I’m also going to be releasing music under my own name going forward, with the change in approach and sound putting music out under Toothless didn’t feel right to me. I don’t want to use a moniker when everything else about the project is so personal and homegrown.
All that to say I’m going to put out a new song later this week with much more to come over the next few months.
Think You Feel The Same, is this beautiful slice of folk-indie, the chiming guitars wrapped in a hue that’s only made more emotive and personal by the staring that arc and ache over the top of the track, and Nash’s whispered vocals. With all that, and the immediacy of the melodies, you’ll do well to resist it’s charms.
We couldn’t. Check it out, here
