When NME last spoke to Toothless – aka Bombay Bicycle Club bassist Ed Nash – back in June, he was determined to make the dreamy folk-pop project his “main thing… for the foreseeable future.” With a summer of well-received singles and sold-out live shows under his belt, he’s on the right track.
Even better, the long-haired Londoner’s just revealed a poolside acoustic video for latest single ‘The Sirens’. Filmed in the idyllic English countryside with Ed Nash lazing on a li-lo, guitar in hand, the song also features alt-pop quartet Flyte standing in for The Staves – who feature on the original recording. It’s the perfect way to cap off a great first summer for Toothless.
Speaking about his plans for the rest of 2016, Nash said: “Now that the album is just about done, I’m keen to start playing shows again. It’s the thing I enjoy the most and it’s been almost two years since I was on tour. I’m also still writing and recording music, and will start thinking about putting together album number two. There’s no time like the present!”
Toothless will play Paper Dress Vintage, Hackney (w/ Flyte) on November 2.
‘The Sirens’ is out now on Island Records.
