Nash’s sound is completely uncomplicated, yet the lyrics are some of the most complex things we face when we are in love. Love such a euphoric mess that leaves us queasy one moment, elated in a drugged out delirium of happiness and the next in a funk of dreaded blues.

Vocally, Nash sets each track respectively, as the song “Fairground” incorporates the horns, and breathes an essence of a nuance from London town, really an emotive feeling. The simple strings recorded in St. Petersburg join the song, “I’m Not Letting Go,” this song is such a treasure of musical layering. “Just Passing Through,” is an acoustic heartfelt word in a truth-bearing vocal sonnet. With songs like, “Leaves Are Falling,” “Copenhagen,” the imagination can feel free to create its own picturesque interpretation of the music. The song, “Copenhagen” drum tracks were recorded in Los Angeles and not only support the flow but give it such structure.

Beautiful and gentle strings present the next song, “Laura” in a most genteel way. With a quicker more upbeat tempo, “London Winter Cold” sends shivers of cold foggy mornings and dawns quick get always with a lover.
