Heady with the typical challenges of being a 20-something in current society, a British foursome decided to express their reality through some rather good music. Meeting in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Patrick McCallion (vocals and guitar), James Sands (guitar), Sam Bramhall (bass) and Charles Adey (drums) came together to form the alt-rock group The New Nostalgia. Gaining a reputation for combining insightful lyrics to moving melodies, The New Nostalgia has been well-received by notable publications, performed at well-known festivals and even toured Europe. The latest addition to their discography is ‘Millennial Love’.
Hopeful and inspiring, The New Nostalgia expertly express the innocent dreams involved when falling in love during the 21st century. While people face distressing situations like a poor economy, climate change and sociopolitical unrest in this day and age, McCallion and his crew embrace the joy of falling in love and building a future despite existential instability. Millennials may not have the security of financial certainty, but The New Nostalgia insist this is no reason to not feel the all-encompassing joy of being with the person you love.
Following the critically acclaimed singles ‘Fragile Bones’ and ‘Nothing Is New’, ‘Millennial Love’ is an introspective combination of Nothing But Thieves, Foals and Sam Fender. Recorded at Elevator Studios with producer Tom Roach and mastering by Pete Maher, the track interestingly grants each instrument conspicuousness while still coming together as a cohesive whole. Combining powerful guitars with steady drums and McCallion’s distinctive vocals, ‘Millennial Love’ has an instantly anthemic quality to it. Melodic and soothing, The New Nostalgia weave a warm and all-encompassing blanket of sound that one won’t want to remove anytime soon.
