Nick Kingswell – There’s No Cure

Nick Kingswell’s indie-pop sound is unforced and melodious, and while it may not break much new ground musically, it’s a great example of pop done well. Beautifully sung with Nick’s rich tenor, There’s No Cure (heard here) explores regret, when love escapes you, not because you didn’t have the chance to make it work, but because you did and it didn’t work out. 

“when you close your eyes
I can’t help but think
if I cross your mind

but I’m the one who’s dreaming of our old love
if I could ever bring myself to give you up
then I could leave my heart so strong and sure
but there’s no cure
for a man who’s had his chance before”

It’s a lyric world-worn by any number of fellow love travelers, and it demands thought from us all on our life experiences. 

Nick Kingswell’s website is only a placeholder for all of his social, streaming, and purchase sites, but that means that he is at least linking to them all, which is a good sign. I’d love a good biography for the artist somewhere, but that just isn’t the case here, so that is the only negative I really have: “Tell me about yourself, Nick.”

The new long-player entitled Brontide, which translates according to Merriam-Webster as

 “a low muffled sound like distant thunder heard in certain seismic regions especially along seacoasts and over lakes and thought to be caused by feeble earth tremors“,  

features 12-tracks of which There’s No Cure is one. However, I don’t believe this is released as yet, so keep your eyes and ears open for a release date in the near future. 

All in all a nice tune that promises a great collection of music soon. Check out this artist and pick up the music you can find. There are some tracks available on Amazon, and if you are an Apple Music fan, iTunes. 

Note: With Covid-19 still around, probably to be with us for some time, artists like Nick Kingswell and many others need your purchases to keep their heads above water. If your situation allows it, consider purchasing more in these tough times. –Vodka
