‘Golden Hour’ is the second single from Nick Huggins’ sophomore solo album Five Lights. Drawn from a palette of national guitar, homemade electronics and Nick’s soft spoken voice, the individual sounds loop and shift, the subtle detail of each coming to the fore throughout the song. ‘Golden Hour’ is accompanied by an intricate hand-drawn animation by Lucy Fahey, the sketched studies therein mirroring the quiet observational moments in the music.
Nick, along with Oscar+Martin and Teeth & Tongue, will perform this Saturday 26 November on the rooftop of Melbourne Central as part of a collaborative gig between Mess+Noise and Two Bright Lakes for Melbourne Music Week.
