about

"Young Soul" is a synth-soaked, 80's-inspired march that wistfully recalls how pivotal life events could've worked out much better than reality allowed. Marrying the broad sonic palette of Peter Gabriel and Fleetwood Mac with the lyrical vulnerability of Ben Gibbard, in “Young Soul” Nicklas longs for a “second chance” to win in the face of tough losses.

"Young Soul" is the first single from the forthcoming full-length, Games, out in September on New Jersey’s Black Rd Records.

LYRICS

I can wait for one
Second chance
With both of you

That was the plan
All along
In my mind

I wish my thoughts
Could catch up
To the actions of my hands

Young soul
I apologize
For a sorry escape I know

Young Soul
Enlighten me
I don't want to leave you there

It's hard to understand
When you get what you want
You don't know what you have

Testing subtle hints
Am I reading into it?
Gravity draws us in

Young soul
I apologize
For a sorry escape I know

Young soul
Enlighten me
I don't want to leave you there

So cold
I walk around
Aimed toward nowhere

If I was bold
We'd still have this night forever

Young soul
I apologize
For a sorry escape I know

Young Soul
Enlighten me
I don't want to leave you there
I don't want to leave you there
