Nathan Detroit offer up a peace of mind
"This EP is a journey,” says Jamie Reeve, vocalist of Wiltshire emo tinged pop rockers Nathan Detroit, describing his band’s forthcoming offering, Peace Of Mind, slated for release August 11th; “The subjects we are addressing on it are extremely close to home; we have all been through bad times and good over the past few years, and these four songs tell the story of coming through our lowest points, and out the other side.”
Already on their third release in just two years, Nathan Detroit have clearly been on a creative quest to find their best self. Mission accomplished. To be sure, Peace Of Mind sees the quintet - completed by guitarists Elliot Sykes and Callan Milward, bassist Kye Oxley, and drummer Toby Wrobel - at their most sonically confident and accomplished; frothing with melodies and punchy, infectious hooks, the EP’s four tracks feel positively jam packed with killer choruses and memorable refrains.
