One can never simply play Frank Nicolas, and not be immersed in the wistful tranquility that his discography brings. Nicolas proves this again in his latest track — Continental Breakfast. The track brings out the melancholy in Nicolas’ music that is so representative of the best of John Denver, Johnny Cash or even Cat Stevens. The simple, yet effective, disposition of the track leaves no room for error or addition. Continental Breakfast begins with guitar arpeggios and slides that immediately take your mind back to the classic 60s, decorated with Nicolas’ ripened vocals singing the lovelorn ballad. The track enjoys its ability to flourish nostalgia tinted with bittersweet emotions. Continental Breakfast is arguably a song for mornings woken up in motel bedsheets and foggy winters, in reverence of people of the past who had once remained. The country-folk elements in the track shine through in their compositional style — using a method that has served musicians of the genre for ages in composing tracks that sing about similar thematic elements in similar styles.
Continental Breakfast by Frank Nicolas is everyone’s song for the times we’re going through, in remembering a past that was not decorated with solitary melancholia. Check out the track here:
