I’m going to have to start this review with an apology because I have totally missed the boat on this one. This track has been doing the rounds for absolutely ages, the only reason I am writing this is because I like it so much and I think it deserves to get an airing.
Shropshire based Beth Prior has been on the scene for a few years now winning plenty of friends along the way and if this song is anything to go by then I can see why. This track is taken from the EP of the same name which was released back in July and plans are already in place for a new album to be released sometime in the summer next year.
As I said in the introduction ‘Nomad’ has been out in one form or another for absolutely forever, but better later than never ay!?
Basically there is nothing about this track that I don’t like. I love Prior’s voice, you can really hear her own accent when she sings and that gives the track a real authenticity. The melody is the sound of a late summer sunny evening; it glides along and lays the foundations upon which Prior weaves her beautifully rich vocal tapestry.
‘Nomad’ isn’t just another folk song from just another female singer/songwriter it’s a hell of a lot more than that. It’s exactly four minutes of laid back musical bliss. An absolutely outstanding track.
