NICK SHANE - ÉN RIVERSIDE

RGM VIDEO PREMIERE : WE HAVE THE NEW VIDEO FROM NICK SHANE – ÉN RIVERSIDE

It’s another RGM video premiere, today we have the new video from Nick Shane and his new video Én Riverside

Here are a few words about the video, enjoy!👊

“Én Riverside is a melodic ode to time and reflection, inspired by a peaceful end to a busy and chaotic year. Én Riverside is a melodic ode to time and reflection, inspired by a peaceful end to a busy and chaotic year, and is the perfect follow-up to the equally dark and chaotic Shine Over Me (Feb 2023), and a far-cry from the psychedelic/folk single Stranger Times (July 2022), and a million miles away from the heavy mod/grunge album, Wired To The Moon (April 2022). 

Én Riverside features some of Scotland’s best session and touring musicians, such as Ed Muirhead, Calum Ingram and Paul Lefty Wright, creating a wholesome sense of wonderfully orchestral inner peace. The lyrics describe feelings of both respite and restlessness, such as returning home after months of touring, quietly observing what’s-what.

The introductory verses describe the end of a relationship, which was a pivotal subject in previous Nick Shane’s 2022 album, Wired To The Moon. Én Riverside will feature as part of Nick Shane’s upcoming, and seventh studio album Silence/Golden (summer 2024 tbc).

This particular single “captivates the sound for the latter part of the album”,  which will include predominantly acoustic and folk tracks, complementing string and piano parts, performed by some exceptional collaborators. 

Én Riverside was written by Nick Shane in the Spring of 2018, after moving to a new area (Dundee’s ‘Riverside’) after a separation. He shelved this song after its writing, and during the pandemic of 2020, began to collaborate with a number of musicians around Scotland, building up it’s orchestral dynamics.
