After a seven year long hiatus from the spotlight and working with electro-pop quartet The Arsonist, Louis-Rendle O’Shea (singer, songwriter, producer) makes his solo debut with new single, ‘Falling’.
Rendle O’Shea has always had a passion for music, but decided to take a break to focus on friends and family for a while instead, always knowing in the back of his mind that he’d someday return to his days of making music. His passion was rekindled by an untimely loss, with the idea for ‘Falling’ coming to the producer in the early hours of the morning - two weeks after his father’s passing.
The Nocturnal project is said to be some of Rendle O’Shea’s most honest work yet, with the restart of their musical career marked by a song made with pure emotional energy and no expectations or restrictions creatively. The piece tells a tale of substance abuse, a tale that the singer songwriter is no stranger to. Going through endless struggle and coming to the realisation of the predicament he was in, gathering courage to fight off these demons had to have been no easy feat; but here we find the musician walking a better path toward the future.
Although a solo project, Nocturnal thrives on collaboration, especially with skilled musicians and audio engineers by his side. Thanks to the work of Jon Stockman (bass) and Steve Judd (drums) of Karnivool, ‘Falling’ has a rhythm section that brings it to life and could not have been finished off better than by award winning recording engineer and producer Dave Parkin (Spacey Jane, Pond, Drapht).
With a fiery passion to fuel this songwriter’s engine, there’s no doubt that we’ll be seeing more of Nocturnal in the future. But for now, ‘Falling’ stands as an amazing debut.
