If you haven’t heard of Nic Billington yet, you’re missing out on one of the most exciting emerging dark-pop artists out there. As a super fan of the independent singer-songwriter. I can tell you that his sophomore album “Dark Horse” is sure to be a tantalising listen. (“Dark Horse” drops on February 9th, and I’m counting down the days until I can hear the full album!). Bearing in mind, with previous singles like “Living to Die” and his unique cover of Billy Idol’s “White Wedding,” Nic has shown us what he’s capable of. He’s subsequently, feeding our appetite for more by sharing a new taste of what’s to come. in the tantalising lead-in single “Slasher.” Again, this is a notably haunting track showcasing his raw talent and creativity.
Nic’s latest releases showcase his musical prowess as he experiments with darker music stylings. And where noticeably, his tracks have progressively become darker, culminating in “Slasher.” A track where he explores themes of love, lust, and a desperate need for attention. Moreover, this release is undeniably his darkest and most compelling one yet. Thus, making it a must-listen for any music enthusiast looking for a raw and emotional experience.
On the single Nic said…
“In today’s world of social media and dating apps, a lot of us are constantly putting ourselves out there, seeking attention and validation. This track pokes fun at the whole pursuit of excitement from complete strangers – even though they could very well be a serial killer.”
To begin with. Whether you’re a fan of horror or just appreciate great storytelling, this music video is a must-watch. This is because, when in keeping with the dark atmosphere created in the song, the “Slasher” music video similarly evokes a sinister story. Depicted in scenes that might easily belong to an episode of American Horror Story. Additionally, the provocative lyrics are brought to life in a startling and disturbing manner. Undoubtedly, the gripping footage is such, watching the clip will either have viewers sitting on the edge of their seats or cowering into the corner of their sofas. But that’s just to begin with! Get ready to be captivated and disturbed in equal measures as the suspense builds towards the inevitable strike of the slasher.
Join me in supporting this incredible artist and mark your calendars for “Dark Horse” out February 9.
