TUNE Nick Byrne - Summer Rain
Summer Rain is an introspective ode to young love, heartbreak and healing.
This beautiful slice of soft melancholia portrays a midsummer downpour as a moment of realisation ahead of a journey towards recovery – and the start of something new. “Walk, just walk with me” Nick asks, his voice soothing and reassuring throughout.
At this time of the year, rain is not always welcomed – but Nick highlights the hidden beauty in this vivid and very much multi-sensory experience. This is reflected in the production of Summer Rain, with many atmospheric elements – samples of tape-recorded speech and the sound of rain itself – which all contribute to create a transcendental and immersive experience.
