Premiere: "Ride It Out" by Nate Cole

Filmed and edited by D. Wing. "Ride It Out" written and recorded by Nate Cole & D. Wing.

Nate Cole’s music is dreamy in a way that is unique to him. There’s something otherworldly about him, made abundantly clear throughout his 2016 album, Bad Beat. His voice is gentle and dripping with honesty as he sings visually poignant lyrics (“tell me a story tell me anything at all, Sera /I spilled my guts and then I pinned em' on your wall...”, and “I guess that's why I'm looking over my shoulder/the lightning casts a shadow I can't get over”), and there is nothing more magical than when art makes you feel seen.

This singularity makes every Nate Cole song feel like a gift, and that feeling holds especially true with his latest single, “Ride It Out”.

The first track of an upcoming five song EP, Tilt, that will be released on all streaming platforms September 4, "Ride It Out" is "...deeply personal and specific while maintaining a level of ambiguity, which is something i [sic] love about the potential of music in general,” Nate told Slaughterhouse via email. Produced by D. Wing, the EP features bass/guitar and, “other cosmic parts” contributed by friend and former Castledoor bandmate, Brandon Schwartzel (currently of FIDLAR). “The songs comprise of many wild hang sessions combined with each of us emailing ideas to each other,” Nate writes in the same genuine tone peppered throughout the email, making us wish (kind of desperately) that we were in the room for one of those “hang sessions”.
