Nathan Jacques “The Fire Smells Like Rain” – You know, I don’t think they’re from around here

Nathan Jacques brings us a Western Tale in the ‘Ghost Riders in the Sky‘ mould, only these strangers from the sky might not be exactly supernatural.  It all starts with a meteorite crashing to the ground, followed by a titanic struggle as fire drips from the sky.  Honest officer, that’s what happened.

New England raised and now a resident of L.A., Nathan Jacques has explained where the song came from: “‘The Fire Smells Like Rain’ is an homage to the classic songwriting style of western music made popular by Marty Robbins, Johnny Cash, and others. Putting the listener right over the shoulder of the main character so they can see, hear, and feel everything in real-time. Vivid detail is a sacred way to tell a story and something I long to carry on.”

‘The Fire Smells Like Rain’ is taken from Nathan Jacques’ new concept album ‘Loud Mind’, which tells of a Western journey with more than one twist.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
