August Wells make a warped soulful return to Irish airwaves, with the release of ‘Nothing Like Love’, the first single to be taken from their forthcoming third album.
Ken Griffin and John Rauchenberger’s melancholic odes have struck a chord with music listeners here and further afield. With their two critically acclaimed albums to date A Living and a Dying Game and 2016's excellent Madness Is the Mercy which along with a string of fine singles has seen them received warmly by music shows across the dial. Their music speaks of the fragility of the human condition while all the while providing an uplifting swing.
'Nothing like love' is a 3 minute drama about being pushed aside by love. Like Bill Withers singing a Lou Reed song August Wells dance along the edge. August Wells continue to release poignant singles that defy the transparency of much of today’s vacuous fare that provide something of a welcome break from the norm.
