A couple weeks ago I reviewed Nick Santino and the Northern Wind’s EP, Going Home. This past week they released a new EP called The Ones You Meet Along the Way: A Collection of Stories from the Road. Since then, I’ve been playing it while walking to class, riding the bus, struggling to write a communications essay… It’s basically my soundtrack for everything lately.
The EP has a country acoustic sound with seven songs sung by the smooth voice of Nick Santino. My two personal favorites are “I’m Still Around” and “Too Good.” The former has a more upbeat sound that’s perfect for an autumn road trip, while the latter is a slower love ballad (or, perhaps, a heartbreak ballad) that is soothing to play after a long day of classes.
If you find that you love them as much as I do, then you can go see them December 1st at Brighton Music Hall. They’ll be playing with their good friends This Century and, lucky for you, tickets are still available!
