Canadian musician, singer-songwriter and The Burning Hell member, Nick Ferrio is set to release his new solo album Have a Nice Day on before the end of September.
Earlier this summer Ferrio offered a sample of his wares with the unforgettable ‘I Don’t Know How Long’ with its irresistible melody and fuzzy riff-filled ’60s garage rock vibes. With the release date for the new record closing in, Ferrio has served us with another tasty taster of the new record with new single ‘How Will I Know’. It is a philosophical song, with Ferrio pondering his relationship with music and why he is drawn to make it. The result is a beautifully written song revolving around an irresistible, timeless melody and a brimming sense of inward sought optimism that will land ‘How Will I Know’ in your head for days on end. It is a super-catchy blend of indie-rock with folk flavours (like Tom Petty meets Arcade Fire) as Ferrio airs his experiences of being in a band, in Canada, which, in the wintertime especially, he says “isn’t playing music but it’s the day to day activities – driving, driving, eating, sleeping and more driving. I think the secret is finding joy in those activities that makes the choice to be a musician worthwhile. I mean, I could’ve picked a normal job, but where’s the fun in that?”
It is yet another incredibly catchy and melodic delight – while saying something purposeful and meaningful.
Listen to ‘I Don’t Know How Long’ below. Ferrio’s new album, Have a Nice Day, is out on September 28th. Pre-order it on Bandcamp.
