AUDIO: Nate Barksdale – “Summer Was Over Before It Started”
Happy end of summer y’all. Chicago avant-soul artist Nate Barksdale is out with a new record, inspired by close relationships enriched through the tribulations of this past year. His drive to make music fluctuated; sometimes it made sense, other times it felt entirely chaotic. He hopes with this album folks may find a sense of clarity as we endure increasingly volatile times. Barksdale’s thematic palette encompasses renewal, euphoria, summertime magic, and psychedelic love. He’s destined to pioneer sonic innovation in the years to come. His sound is like colors on the rainbow spectrum that each get their airtime in a painter’s expression. We’re enthusiastic about where this record will take him and what it will mean to those who experience it.
