IS IT PURE COINCIDENCE that Chicane’s extended remix album happened to collide with Fiona Apple’s latest release? That Mr. Bracegirdle and Ms. Apple might have actually conspired on their release dates is totally unlikely but also pure fantasy fantasy fodder for die hard fans.
Nick’s newest album Thousand Mile Stare, is sheer relief from some of the more overproduced, heavily commercialized tracks of Chicane’s past few years. In TMS, Chicane is getting back to the roots of what it originally was with Halcyon: breezy, ethereal, dreamy music that harkens us back to happier days and too short Ibiza summers with salt in our hair and sand between our toes. (If you’ve never heard of the electronic musical act before, I promise you will fall in love with their signature track No Ordinary Morning, if not Saltwater or Don’t Give Up).
