The Skinny: “This EP is a journey,” says Jamie Reeve, vocalist of Wiltshire emo tinged pop rockers Nathan Detroit, describing his band’s forthcoming offering, Peace Of Mind, slated for release August 11th; “The subjects we are addressing on it are extremely close to home; we have all been through bad times and good over the past few years, and these four songs tell the story of coming through our lowest points, and out the other side.”

Already on their third release in just two years, Nathan Detroit have clearly been on a creative quest to find their best self. Mission accomplished. To be sure, Peace Of Mind sees the quintet – completed by guitarists Elliot Sykes and Callan Milward, bassist Kye Oxley, and drummer Toby Wrobel – at their most sonically confident and accomplished; frothing with melodies and punchy, infectious hooks, the EP’s four tracks feel positively jam packed with killer choruses and memorable refrains. Case in point comes in the form of taster track “The Way Down”.

Peace Of Mind is a chance for us to show people we are a serious band with a genuine message,” muses Reeve; “We have put more effort into than any past releases in every aspect. We have learned so much about ourselves over the past few years as a band, and this new sense of self is what we have tried to capture in this EP, along with our real life experiences and emotions that we hope people can relate to. The sound on Peace Of Mind is the truest representation of ourselves, right now.”
