Joseph Lawrence & The Garden release ‘Nostalgia’, their first single of 2020. The track comes as the first of three to be unveiled this month. The song represents trying to leave behind a previous version of yourself but feeling plagued by thoughts and visions of the past.

The London-based collective, comprised of vocalist Joseph Lawrence and instrumentalist Gibbi, have created a track saturated with deep sultry tones, sheer vocal grit and powerful rawness. ‘Nostalgia’ marries psychedelic twangs of guitars with a prevailing drumbeat.

The pair met three years ago with no real plan behind what they were doing. At the time, Gibbi was working with a few different artists but was attracted to Joseph due to the distinctive nature of his vocals. Joseph Lawrence & The Garden combine the free-jazz ambition of Kendrick Lamar with the soul-inflected ambience of James Blake for a sound that’s both musically complex and bursting with soul.
