Steve Jansen. New Single 'faced with nothing'

Postby banyan on Fri Sep 05, 2014 12:59 pm

Hi

New single release from Steve featuring Nicola Hitchcock

From his website...
A new single track release from Steve Jansen titled ‘Faced With Nothing’ featuring Nicola Hitchcock
will be available from the iTunes store and other selected download stores from the 15th September 2014

A delicate, emotive song that fuses the intimacy and fragility often evoked by both composers.

(Those familiar with Steve’s work may feel this piece correlates with his previous titles: ‘My Winter’ & ‘Playground Martyrs’)

Music written, performed, recorded & mixed by Steve Jansen
Vocal performed & recorded by Nicola Hitchcock
Music arranged by Steve Jansen & Nicola Hitchcock
Lyrics by Nicola Hitchcock

Thanks for the information, Banyan.

I just checked out http://www.nicolahitchcock.com and enjoyed 'Quarterbright' posted there.

Hi all

Be interested to hear what people think of this song?

My first impression was that it reminded me of The Blue Nile - a similar kind of wistful, melancholic feel. At first I thought it would have better suited a vocalist like Paul Buchanan too, but the vocal has grown on me.

What I really love is the lightly-trembling, monophonic, woody, Ondes-Martenot-like sound that runs through the track - you can really here it from 2:20 to 2:35 or 0:48 to 1:15. Beautiful. Really makes it for me.

It is a really beautiful song. The arrangement is extremely accurate and delicate, and Nicola Hitchcock's work on the vocals is lovely, and a pleasant surprise.
