Brighton band Nature TV released their second EP, Lady Luck, just last week.
With contemplative nostalgia and a histotrophic soundtrack of faded relationships, paranoia and heartbreak taking centre stage throughout, the rising quartet are primed to capitalise on last year’s acclaimed Emotion Sickness EP, having become a firm favourite amongst key industry gatekeepers, earned support across the BBC Radio 1 airwaves (Huw Stephens) and opened for the likes of Swimming Tapes and Trudy and the Romance.
Speaking ahead of their EP release, the dreamers explained: ‘Lady Luck is an attempt at trying to work through the gambles we all take in life and love. Naturally, none of those gambles have paid off for us, so it’s a collection of tracks where we’re trying to get over those losses. Don’t gamble everyone.’
Give Lady Luck a spin below.
We asked Nature TV to make us a playlist for the weekend. Tune in.
Khruangbin - Dern Kala
They just have a distinct sound. I think this instrumental showcases them well, full of laidback beats and atmospheric guitar tones. Khurangbin is my go-to for winding down.
Daft Punk - Something About Us
It doesn't get realer than this. If you're feeling sorry for yourself and just straight sad, they've got your back.
James Holt - Little Green Light
Actually found this song via a Facebook ad. It's melancholy but stays engaging with melodic hooks and theatrical twists. Seems like a relatively new artist but am excited to see what he does.
The Beatles - And I Love Her
This is just a perfect track from the topper-most of the popper-most
Arcade Fire - Ocean of Noise
Takes me back to being a teenager, always makes me feel some kind of crazy
Bobby Caldwell - My Flame
Originally heard it as a sample in Sky's The Limit by Biggie but it's my yacht rock dream song.
Jeff Buckley - Lover, You Should've Come Over
Grace is up there with the greatest albums. This shook me from nu-metal and grunge in my teenage years. The tender beauty and raw power of it blew my mind!
Tallest Man on Earth - Love is All
The first song I heard from TMOE and it has it all. Peaceful guitar, nice dramatic pauses and just pure emotion in his voice.
Kate Bollinger - I Don't Wanna Lose
Really loving her stuff, it's been on repeat for a long time now. The production is super nice and the vocals are incredible. Real catchy in the best way.
Noah & The Whale - First Days of Spring
I make pretty much all-important decisions in my life to this song. Just really gets me in the mood.
