Nathaniel Paul Shares New Single ‘Turpentine’

Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer, songwriter and 1/2 of the band The Bergamot, Nathaniel Paul has just shared his brand new single Turpentine, the title track of his upcoming sophomore album which will arrive this summer through AWAL. 
Turpentine refers to the state of homogeneity that has been created through the overconsumption of news, social media, and the internet at large. It aims to make the listeners aware of what were are going through as a culture. I am a fan of Nathaniel Paul's smooth, somewhat soothing vocals, which are very expressive and glide beautifully over the chilled out production. I am particularly fond of the intricate guitars and steady percussion that create an overall warm, chill atmosphere that I find perfect for a relaxing weekend out in the sun. 
Accompanying the release, Nathaniel Paul has shared its official music video which shows footage of him hanging upside down paired with some animated clips. Check it out below!



Speaking about the video, Nathaniel Paul said,
I almost died shooting this video. I thought it wasn’t going to be all that bad. But when your actually hanging upside down, it really gives you tunnel vision. But honestly, we live in a world of chemicals and things trying to kill us all the time, I thought this was the perfect way to convey the message of the song.
