Fred Nicolas – Help

Fred Nicolas - Help

Introducing Fred Nicholas, a Swedish songwriter/producer/multi-instrumentalist who is debuting his single ‘Help’.

Co-produced by Simon Hassle (Skott, Zara Larsson) the song has an underlying pop melody that perfectly matches with Fred’s reassuring vocal tones.

It’s always good to ask friends for help, and have friends give you help when you are your worst self, so this one goes out to you.

Expect his EP in early 2018.

When two Swedes team up, it is dynamite.

The result is ‘Missing You’; an upbeat electro pop track that remains tireless, regardless of how many times you play it.

Rationale – Fuel To The Fire

Rationale

Rationale

Rationale reveals the stunning new video to ‘Fuel To The Fire’, inviting us to witness a more passionate side to his music than previously offered.

The track was written by the Londoner after watching particularly grim news on the television 18 months ago. Rationale explains ‘Fuel To The Fire’ “is a song about power, pressure, frustration & hope.”

The extremely evocative video tells the story, and despite the track being written 18 months ago, the subject matter unfortunately remains timeless.
