Local musician, and contributor for The Corner, Nick Raven, has just released the first single from his forthcoming EP Follow Your Bliss. As he says, “‘Nineteen Fifty Three’ takes its title from the fifties, and its musical inspiration from the eighties: think Matt Johnson’s observant songwriting in The The, and The Cure’s most introspective moments. The song speaks of a universal theme: how life can seem surreal and strange and screwed up, and how easy it is to stray from what we set out to do. Yet companionship and caring for people can carry you through this”. The track’s available as a name-your-price download via Bandcamp or, just as easily, listen to a stream of it below.
