nasmore burns the bridge between past and present with his darkly powerful new single and video When Will I Learn — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Fuelled by fired-up musicianship — including a sensational guitar solo from ace axe-man Neil Taylor — and topped with the serious punch of Cris Hodges, nasmore delivers a hard-rock epic in every sense with When Will I Learn. Pushing boundaries with a dynamic sound that layers ever-evolving atmospherics with richly melodic backing, the track is an anthem for anyone fighting with loss, regret, and remorse.
Twisting through a story expertly crafted as only a songwriter like nasmore can, no quarter is spared in telling a tale of the harsh reciprocal effects of karma. From devastating emotions to insightful lyricism that details a genuine yearning for there to be more to life than there is, the Regina rocker’s penchant for tackling issues and themes that others are afraid to address directly makes When Will I Learn hauntingly relatable.
The collaborative methods of artist/producer nasmore and his chameleonic approach have embraced a stunning variety of different styles over the past year. Recently he struck gold with Hodges, carving out a series of unique epics. On his new track, he’s pushed the partnership even further by adding the howling guitar of Taylor, whose playing on Tears for Fears’ Songs From The Big Chair — featuring Everybody Wants To Rule the World — is part of music history. Also a former member of Robbie Williams’ band, and a long-term collaborator with stars like Tina Turner, Chris de Burgh and Natalie Imbruglia, Taylor wastes little time in making his contribution to the new song heard, lashing out with fierce licks that perfectly mingle with Hodges’ rough, expressive vocals.
