REVIEW – The Nomadic Trap Listeners Underwater With A Languid, Loping Americana Alt Rock Tune In “Treading Water”

Following on from the successful release of first album “My Mind is Racing” in January 2022, The Nomadic has released its first single “Treading Water” from the upcoming “New Horizons” album.

 

The song explores the theme of being ‘stuck’ which is displayed in a very relatable way with the music video, contrasting the entrapment of an office type/ corporate environment, with the freedom of the ocean, where the protagonist escapes, whilst haunted by flashbacks to a former life.

 

What makes this track one of the best we came across is the wicked guitar work, starting up from a simple acoustic guitar progression and a subtle string arrangement, and then quickly builds momentum with an urgent guitar riff and atmospheric overlays/ overdubs. This progression forms a very catchy tune that will grab the listeners attention throughout the song, very much in the style of the War on Drugs

 

The lyrics are very well written as they evoke emotions and inspire thoughts that contribute to the song’s overall emotional impact.


The Nomadic is the best of Aussie rock talent, with Miles Thomas (Lior, Ronan Keating, Montaigne) on drums, Oliver Thorpe (The Whitlams, Matt Corby, Meg Mac) on guitar, and Brendan Clark (Meg Mac, Montaigne, Jack River) on bass. Dan Frizza as producer lends the kind of magic touch that has seen him enrich the work of the likes of Tones & I, King Princess, and Gurrumul.
