Nick Waterhouse unveils a Valentine's Day weekend release "Very Blue / Medicine" both from the upcoming album Promenade Blue (April 9th).
As Under The Radar reports: "LA-based singer/songwriter Nick Waterhouse sounds like a man out of time, almost as if he was transported straight from the ‘50s and ‘60s era he takes such deep influence from. Melding together strains of soul, jazz, R&B, and garage rock, Waterhouse, over the course of several albums, has hit on a tight vintage style, putting a modern twist on sounds of the past. On his fourth album, Promenade Blue, Waterhouse once again looks into the past, but this time rooted in his own life and memories, from career highs and lows to loves lost and found. Waterhouse has returned with two new singles from the project, “Very Blue” and “Medicine,” premiering with Under the Radar. "
As Clash reports, Nick Waterhouse unveils a new single, "Place Names," from his upcoming album Promenade Blue. Waterhouse explains: "'Place Names' is the song I have been writing my entire life. I wanted to figure out a way to astrally project the listener into all the places and pathways - metropolitan or naturalistic - I could. Look up at the light of a big sky against a hillside city dotted with lights, the sea rising before you, the street unfolding as you climb up from the subway stairs, all in some dreamy place filled with promise and wisdom it can deliver to you. Then remember everyone who ever brought beauty into your own life." Promenade Blue is due out on April 9th, 2021. Pre-order it here.
Today, LA-based singer-songwriter/producer Nick Waterhouse returns with a vibrant, psych-rock cover of “Pushing Too Hard” (The Seeds). Best known for his riffage rooted in rhythm & blues, jazz, and soul, Waterhouse delivers his signature nostalgic crush between soaring, raspy vocals and funky key solos on the new track. Recorded on a rainy day in Memphis, featured guest vocalists on the chorus include Memphis’ own gospel killers The Sensational Barnes Bros. & Los Angeles treasure Little Willie G of Chicano-rock group, Thee Midniters. Discussing his drive behind the cover, Waterhouse shares, “[‘Pushing Too Hard’]...it has become a bit of a holistic form of musical self-hypnosis over the years for me. What to do when circumstance has pushed you into the narrow valley of precarity? Well, you lay down... or you push back. Especially with a well worn (mistake not for blunt object, dear listener) and thereby well-loved and powerful talisman.”
