The former Spring King drummer and vocalist Tarek Musa, now making a name for himself as a producer and new project Dead Nature, dips into his first single of the year, ‘Red Clouds’.
The catchy indie number, released last week through Dead Nature Records, features guest backing vocals from All We Are’s Guro Gikling.
“'Red Clouds' is about those dewy-eyed experiences we have of love, of people moving on, of moments you truly don’t want to end,” he says. “I was listening to a lot of lo-fi 80s music, the kinds of songs that bands were recording in their garages or local DIY studios on the first home-studio budget tape machines, and it inspired me to indulge in that world. A world of simple songs centred around innocent romance and love with lyrics so effortless in their attempt to be anything other than 3 minutes of pure nostalgia.”
