Single release: ‘Old Blood’ by Nathan Seeckts

NathanSeekts_OldBlood.jpgVictorian singer-songwriter Nathan Seeckts has been releasing music and performing live since 2010, releasing three EPs in that time. He’s appeared at the Tamworth Country Music Festival and in support of acts such as You Am I, Archie Roach, Tex Perkins and Raised By Eagles. Seeckts also hosts ‘Last Night in Town’, a weekly radio program on community radio station 94.7 The Pulse that focuses on Americana and alt-country. Accordingly, Seeckts has been steeped in these genres of country music and his lineage is clear in ‘Old Blood’, the first single from his forthcoming album, The Heart of the City.

On ‘Old Blood’, Seeckts’s rich, distinctive voice conjures world-weariness, grabs at the heart and leaves the listener wanting more. There is sadness here more than melancholy; the song is explicitly about regret but it’s not nihilistic – there is a hint, in that voice, that a corner might be turned.
