Reliably informed

Ever wondered what would happen if you spoke to that person opposite you on your daily commute into your mundane job? Sam Nix answers that question and more with his latest single: the Anglo-twisted piece of Americana, A Girl I Met On The Tube Last Week. A blissfully paced regale of a chance meeting on public transport, the minimalist arrangement of acoustic guitar and sparse drums meanders and saunters like cigarette smoke in a pub.

This never steals focus from the melancholic and elegant vocals and the story they tell. Heartfelt, wistful, juxtaposed with a hopefulness, Nix ultimately dishes out the lesson; next time your eyes meet on the train, take that chance. It might be the best thing you ever do.
