Succumb to the Audial Pleasantry of BANNERS
A compilation of five dynamic tracks that have one adjective in common: lovely.
Today, BANNERS shares a brand new project - a self-titled EP that explores the sounds of pure emotion. Also known as Mike Nelson, this Liverpool singer/songwriter has been on the come up and buzzed about globally over the past year, and this brand new EP will show you exactly why.
In just a handful of songs, BANNERS bring ethereal vocals and glistening production alive. "Pleasant" doesn't even begin to describe the emotional investment this small (yet powerful) project emanates. This guy's got soul.
"Shine A Light" was the stand-out single to preview this project, with folky tinges and misty, illuminating vibes.
“The song is about feeling lost at sea and desperately searching for a beacon of light,” he spoke in an interview. “It’s about waiting for that one big wave to finally pull you under while clinging on to that one last ray of hope. It’s a song to the person in your life that offers salvation while the storm is raging around you.”
