Shameless Tuesdays: Livre 66 |The Academy of Sun's Nick Hudson
Within The Academy of Sun, frontman Nick Hudson can be something of a showstopper in a dark musical escapade; on his own, his talents will pull any listener into a whirlwind of emotions! Arriving on April 30th, his latest solo album The Font of Human Fractures finds its voice throughout multiple genre transformations. This is hinted at in the album's single "Surkov's Dream", which haunts its way through the brain via church organs, ominous string sections, and heartbroken vocals. Its b-side "There is No Such Thing as You" treads similar ground, this time with a sole piano demonstrating the anguish of losing the love of your life. Now, with another EP just releasing before the album arrives, Nick Hudson comes to take us on a journey towards serenity in this week's Shameless Tuesdays!
Here's what Nick has to say about this week's playlist:
“This playlist brings together songs that have given me huge comfort over the last few months whilst also signifying in ways both obvious and private the idea of forward motion: we’ve all been etched into this debilitating groove of lockdowns, house arrest and diminished connectivity for over a year now. These are songs that have for me and my loved ones shone light on where next to forage for life, excitement, peace, ecstatic truth and enrichment of the heart. I hope they’ll illuminate the listener in similar or indeed altogether surprising ways. Hang in there everyone.
Stay well, all."
