‘Call It Love’ was produced by Nathan’s fellow band member and long-time collaborator Max Radford. Led by compelling vocal melodies and earnest lyricism, ‘Call It Love’ gently builds with its spacious rhythmic section into sweeping deft guitar and dream-laden keys. Coasting along effortlessly, the track never loses sight of its consistent energy, only slightly shifting when needed into its soaring anthemic chorus.
Splitting his time between Cornwall and London, Nathan finds inspiration in the outdoors, and much of his material is connected to his surroundings. “It’s where I write best; by the sea, in the mountains, in the woods. I love being totally immersed in nature so naturally those themes find their way into the music. I love being in the ocean – just being in it, and feeling totally insignificant. It’s a reminder of the order of things.”
Nathan’s work fuses two chief loves – classic song writing and an eagerness to experiment and push sonic boundaries. Perhaps unexpectedly, he finds inspiration in left-field house music. “I love the way it makes you feel – it’s euphoric, but sad, introverted but expressive. I love that darker side of the genre”.
