Vancouver singer and multi-instrumentalist Nicholas Krgovich is set to drop his album The Hills this spring. He’s already shared three incredible tracks “Backlot Detail,” “The Place Goes Quiet,” and “Sunset Tower” with accompanying videos for two of the three. Today he offers the gorgeous, melancholy “Written In The Wind.” Sparse bass and acoustic guitar strums leave plenty of room for Krgovich’s delicate, wispy vocals to gloomily float through the track. His tone is a bit more nasally than usual because he was sick when recording this song, but it adds another intricate layer of texture to his notes as they linger. His harmony with Katie Eastburn on the chorus wistfully finds it way to your veins heading straight for the heart. Krgovich had this to say about the song: “Me taking on the roll of Judy London or maybe Judy Garland when she sings ‘You’re Nearer.’ A long midnight of the soul, jazz club song.” It is so, so pretty. Listen.
The Hills is out 3/4 on Tin Angel Records.
