“I was curious to read the words “ambient” and “classic rock”, with “indiepop” referring to one song. “Rain” delivers, with layered music melded skillfully and artfully. For me, “ambient” will forever remind me of Brian Eno’s haunting “On Land”. Nick Duane’s song opens briefly in a similar synthetic mode, but quickly surprises and delights. Duane gives us texture by introducing classic rock guitar. By that, I mean, this guy is good. The complexity of his playing is old school, but the sound is fresh. On top of that, the vocals have a raw sound reminiscent of Tom Petty on a less rebellious day. Emotive lyrics flow with the artist’s mood, unconfined by conventional structure. I imagine a thoughtful, slow drive in the rain. This is a song that embraces the rain, but, as Duane says, “celebrates sunshine”. It brings me home.”
