A Magical Place: Nav’s Hook admires the big city dreams on ‘Skyline’

After impressing on the wish-we-had-more-time gem called ‘Letters‘, Nav’s Hook is back with a deep track all about trying to avoid that ever-present loneliness on ‘Skyline‘.

Nav’s Hook is an ever-improving alt/pop/rock artist who is India-born and was raised in Cyprus. He mixes in elements of blues and other genres too, to bring forth a sterling blend of music creativity that sits so well with the soul.

An alt pop-rock tune with some space-rock elements, Skyline is sort of an imagining of a cityscape horizon that at first glance is fantasy like but underneath, carries an intriguing layer of a ‘romance-in-transit’. That amazingly lit up high-rise world where we live out our independence as individuals, and in the moment, with big city dreams. Though it’s changed in appearance over time, what’s never changed is the inert desire to conquer loneliness and hence, the short-lived ‘urban fling’. Sometimes special, and even beautiful, but at times a mindwarp escapade where we don’t let emotions get in the way, that is, until… they get in the way… (oh humanity!).” ~ Nav’s Hook

Featuring a studious beat which has you gazing outside the window wherever you are in the world, to see what is exactly around you as you pinch yourself and revert back into reality. With so many distractions around that can take you away from your true purpose, this is the perfect reminder that we all needed to hear.

Skyline‘ from the India-born, Cyprus-raised Nav’s Hook, swirls into your mind with a big light being brightly directed towards the big city. You can make your dreams inside but also be broken from all the break-ups, friendships lost, and lonely nights when you wonder deeply at the path you are headed down. Made with customary class and love from a soulful artist, this is a highly reflective track which will have you thinking deeply about your next move.

Rocky Ground: Nav’s Hook looks for that sign in the sky on ‘Twisted Winds’

What was supposed to have been a connection built on trust, ends up being something caught in a storm, ‘cause neither one really held their end of the bargain.” ~ Nav’s Hook

Twisted Winds‘ by the Indian-born multi-genre musician Nav’s Hook, is a relevant story about trying to save a partnership that was on track to such a beautiful place.

Sung with such passionate love and that sensational potent style which makes this such a glorious artist to witness, this is the ultimate almost-break-up track, that will decide your romantic fate this time.

Sometimes you need to know what the future holds before you jump off for good – as you wonder if that all-important trust has been damaged beyond repair – or if it can be fixed again.

Just The Words On The Page: Nav’s Hook wishes there was more written on the soulfully reflective ‘Letters’

As he wonders what might have been had they had more time together, Nav’s Hook takes time to reminisce on this groovy blues gem called ‘Letters‘, that has you lighting the fire and thinking back to the good days that are sincerely missed.

Nav’s Hook is an India-born and based, Cyprus-raised, indie alt-blues singer-songwriter, who has also lived in various countries. He comes in with over twenty years experience in the music game, and has recently started this new project.

Cyprus was the beginning of my musical experience where as an teen I regularly tuned into a British radio station called BFBS (British Forces Broadcasting Service) where anything and everything “British Rock” was played. Of course, later time spent in America only furthered my passions into the kind of music I always wanted to make.” – Nav’s Hook

His superbly toned vocal range is filled with so much easy-to-hear class and the soundscape here is of the highest standard, as you feel the warm energy and totally admire the quality here. The carefully-penned lyrics are so honest and have you thinking back to those moments you certainly wish you could have back.

”‘Letters’ came about while going through a box of old letters. It’s that “dim the lights down with a drink in hand” kind of Rhythm & Blues story of dealing with separation and finding closure in written letters. But sometimes they were so beautifully written that instead of moving on, you found yourself slipping into reverse mode.” – Nav’s Hook

Letters‘ from the India-based indie alt-blues singer-songwriter Nav’s Hook, shows us a man on a mission to express his new art. He flood our minds with a memory that he cherishes so much. As he now sits down by the fire with a beverage, and marvels at these incredible times, that makes him wonder could of transpired if the timing had been different.

You can’t stay away but you know that you should. They are clearly messing you around so you need to keep your distance, you know this inside. The problem is that you can’t get enough. You love being with them but you know long-term that this won’t work. For now, when the lights are off, there is no looking back.
