LISTEN: Ed Nash - 'Think You Feel The Same'

Receiving an email into my submissions with the subject 'Bombay Bicycle Club - new project' last week certainly grabbed my attention. I was really intrigued to see that the band's guitarist Ed Nash is releasing some solo music over the coming months. I love Good Day from the band's recent record, which Ed wrote. Having released a record under the moniker Toothless back in 2017, this time around he's stripping the disguise and releasing under his own name. I've heard a couple of unreleased tracks (....ahh!!) and I'm sure that you're going to love them. This news is all worth sharing for Ed's own label name alone... Bangers & Nash. Genius.

On the thoughts behind the project, Ed shares that "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. 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 [...] I don't want to use a moniker when everything else about the project is so personal and homegrown." 

First track Think You Feel The Same is out now - Ed shares that it was written "at the start of last year on one of the writing trips I took with Jack to work on the most recent Bombay album. It marked a real change in the music I was writing and sparked my move into wanting to try something new. It's been a long old road from that point until now but I can honestly say I have enjoyed putting together this music more than anything I have done before."
