North East-based artist and singer songwriter Simon Taylor has just released his new single ‘Ibiza Nights’, inspired by artists such as Air, Blue States and Bent. Simon Taylor knows how to bring his message across to his fans and listeners, seeing him perform live about a year ago at local venue Cobalt, the artist hasn’t left my radar and I’m glad to hear he is now releasing new music again!
‘Ibiza Nights’ tells a nostalgic tale of returning home to the rut of every day life, longing for and holding on to memories of visiting the White Island. Simon writes from the heart, with passion and a soothing and comforting suave that give his songs something familiar yet still unknown. ‘Ibiza Nights’ is a slow paced folk-inspired song that focuses on Simon’s wandering and almost spoken vocals.
Simon Taylor is always discovering new musical corners and with his latest release shows how charming it can be to combine singer songwriter, with indie folk and a hint of shoegaze, it is fun and done well and I am curious to hear what other musical directions Simon will uncover.
