Daniel Page Spotlights “Nostalgia” in Title Track for First EP
Nostalgia remains a consistent theme in many modern-day songs thanks to its relatability as a shared feeling, even through different experiences. Germany-based singer-songwriter, Daniel Page, relays the importance of it in his own life – and nothing says “important” like naming the title track of your first-ever EP after that theme.
“Nostalgia” is what you could imagine it would be. It centers on memories of a past relationship, feelings of being heartbroken, and feelings of being thankful for the memories that were made. The distant tones of the vocals and instrumentals add to the nostalgia factor, creating an atmosphere that is reminiscent of what would be appropriate for a slow dance with a loved one. Yet a listen to the lyrics guards against the song being precisely appropriate for that. While there is an underlying warmth that comes with the recollection of long-gone moments, there is also a clear desire for a different outcome when it came to the fork in the road of the relationship. If given the chance to turn back the clock, we would.
Bittersweet but still thankful, is the best way to describe the overarching emotions of “Nostalgia,” making it a track that will lull any broken hearts and weary heads. You can listen to the title track and follow the relationship arc through the EP below.
