Nathan Thomas - Still WaterFuturistica
Singer songwriter Nathan Thomas first captured our attention when he layed his honey vocals down on Rapson's 2018 house banger "Heat". Soon afterwards we got a taste of his forthcoming lp when the warm and mellow "SunBlind", the first single also premiered in 2018. At that point our appetite yearned for more and our patience eventually rewarded with "Still Water". The superb ten track lp delivers with an array of delicious down tempo soulful compositions. Evidence can be found with the title track, a sublime recording with sketches of jazz and hip hop with production from Simon S. "Peacemakers" blossoms with Marc Raspson's signature sound of wicked beats and hypnotic keys. "Namaste" is filled with tasty guitar rhythms, sweet vocals and lovely songwriting. Quite simply it's another winner from the Futuristica family. Thomas’s warm vocal harmonies and heartfelt lyrics has the makings of a promising career. A brilliant debut from an emerging talent.
