It only sometimes happens when I get music sent to me and I completely fall in love with the act and can’t let go of how good it is. The Bergamot are one of the not many examples that instantly conquered my heart and started living in it since the release of the soundtrack of one of my dreams ‘L.A.’. Their newest work of art is ‘Bones’. ‘Bones’ is to be released on World Suicide Prevention Day 2019. Nathaniel: “These lyrics are the first words I shared with my brother when he checked out of rehab.” A heavy subject with a musical touch and a silent sigh of relief.
Singer Nathaniel on the story behind the single: “The opening lines of ‘Bones’ are the first words I told my brother after he had checked out of rehab for the second time. My family had to intervene in a suicide attempt on Christmas Day 2016. Three months later, we sat together on the banks of Lake Michigan as he first listened to ‘Bones’. With tears streaming down his face he said, “I want to send this song to all my friends at rehab” My brother is alive to this day. ‘Bones’ speaks the truth with love; we can’t just run from our burdens.”
The Bergamot is set to release their full-length album this summer with London-based producer and engineer Matt Wiggins, who worked with Adele, Florence and Glass Animals. Besides a full-length album, the band is also currently co-producing a documentary called ‘State of the Unity’ which was filmed over the entire journey they made in 2016. The documentary is set to be released in 2020 and the expectations for the end product are very high after the band winning an Emmy last November.
This is ‘Bones’.
