‘The Whole World Drifts Away’
Heist or Hit
Nature TV hail from Brighton, on the south coast of England, just south of London and directly across the English Channel from Le Havre. Nature TV play a sort of dream pop, caught somewhere between The National and Nick Drake via Spandau Ballet. ‘The Whole World Drifts Away‘ is the second single from their upcoming ep, Lady Luck, which is out this week.
Frontman Guy Bangham describes this song as being
all about going over different life choices in your head at night and hoping you’ve made the right decisions or trusted the right people. Sometimes it’s hard to not doubt stuff, especially when you’re trying to get to sleep, but your mind keeps overthinking different routesyou could have taken. But you know, we got a song out of it so it’s not all bad…right.
Ah, yes, self doubt and worry. Nah, we don’t know anything about this, do we kids? Especially not as we watch the world crumble around us.
The track is built up around a flanged-out guitar bit, one that wouldn’t be out of place on a Cure album in the mid-80s, as the song is pushed along by the drums of Zal Jones and Josh Eriskin’s boppy bassline. It is a mellow, catchy little track. I look forward to the full ep this week.
