Australian singer/songwriter Nick Kingswell sold his house and belongings and moved to London in an effort to push his music career. Drawing on his memories of Australia’s oceans, beaches and open landscapes, Kingswell runs these through the gritty filter of London’s big city. He has just released his new single Homesick, which we can guess is all about back home. He spoke with The Fountain about the track as well as the rest of the plans for 2020.

TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Homesick

Very positive. It’s not your run of the mill acoustic songwriter tune, production wise. So I’m happy folks have gotten on board with it. 

TF: How would you sum up the single in one sentence?

Simple, hard hitting, hummable, nostalgic. 

TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?

I’ll release my next single, Now I’m Gone, on October 9th and then my album, Brontide, comes out October 23rd. I’m really excited to share that one!

TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging? 

I’ve only had the pleasure of performing there once, but Omeara in London is an incredible room. Once Covid is under control I’d actually love to play an intimate show at Open Surf in St Agnes, Cornwall. That space is pretty special too.
