We Were Wild EP Press Release

Melbourne folk singer-songwriter Nathan Power launches his new single Shoes.


The jauntiest break up song of 2018, Shoes meditates on the little things left behind after a relationship.

Shoes comes out with a 26-date national tour across VIC, NSW, TAS, ACT and QLD and follows on from the launch of Nathan Power’s debut EP We Were Wild.

Ending 2017 on a high note with the sold-out launch of Nathan Power’s debut single ‘Solstice’ and plays across PBS, 3RRR and Triple J, We Were Wild continued the momentum into 2018 with a 12 date East Coast tour and a string of festival shows.

Shoes is released via Coconut Records on August 3rd with a music video and a national tour, dates below.

“Borrows inspiration from folk, blues and country…” – Beat Magazine

“Laid back tales of an old soul with a guitar. Really delightful listening…” – Nkechi Anele (Triple J)

Nathan Power had a wild childhood, growing up in Yemen, Kenya and Pakistan. He almost got expelled from boarding school for brewing his own dandelion wine in his wardrobe. His family had two pet baboons and a golden eagle. It was all very wild.

There are no animals on Nathan’s debut EP ‘We Were Wild’. Instead, these songs use folk guitar, mandolin and cello to focus on a different kind of wildness – the kind that lives in wandering hearts caged in bad relationships and salaried desk jobs.

People can clearly relate. In 2017, Nathan sold out the launch of his debut single ‘Solstice’, which was played across PBS, 3RRR and Triple J. 2018 carries on the momentum with a 15 date national tour and a string of festivals.

If you’re into artists like the Tallest Man on Earth, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, you’ll be into Nathan Power.
