TUNE Nick Byrne - Houses
‘Houses’ is the poignant new single from Bucks based singer-songwriter Nick Byrne. Featuring fingerpicked guitar with hushed, gently sung vocals accented by piano, and just a dash of electric guitar, the track was inspired by a trip to Liverpool where he came across streets of empty houses falling into ruin. As the lyrics portray, a house represents history, family and belonging, and is a metaphor applicable to life in general – the chorus urges the listener to seize the moment (“I know you have time, don’t you pass it up”). Recorded with Jake Robbins (Weird Milk, Ben McKelvey), 2020 is sure to be the year you make a home for this captivating songwriter in your music collection.
