Ed Nash is the bassist from the beloved indie-group Bombay Bicycle Club and last friday (June 25) he returned solo with a new optimistic track, “Plumes.”
The single is definitely reminiscent of Bombay Bicycle Club, but with a personal and fresh new twist. It’s charming and filled with Ed’s angelic vocals that flow neatly within the lush instrumentals.
Ed Nash, who formerly had another solo project called Toothless, now records his own music under his own name. The single follows a number of releases from 2020, including a cover of “Mad World” featuring Liz Lawrence and three singles, “Say Anything,” “When” and “Think You Feel The Same.”
Released on Ed’s own label, Bangers & Nash, he said of the song:
“‘Plumes’ was written and extensively tinkered with at my home studio during the endless dark evenings this past winter… certainly the bleakest winter I’ve ever had. ‘Plumes’ was my escape from this. ‘Plumes’ is air rising, birds flying and beautiful decorative colours. This is a song of optimism, about breaking free and looking ahead at better things to come.”
