Keating the top five Christmas gifts he's wishing for this season.
Brooding and enigmatic,
Melbourne singer-songwriter Thomas Keating’s yearning single, ‘Cold Night’ is brooding and enigmatic – and is everything we needed to hear this silly season.
Inspired by distance, a cold Melbourne winter, and dreary early mornings, ‘Cold Night’ is an exciting addition to Thomas’s glowing discography. Evocative of Elliot Smith, Phoebe Bridgers and Angie McMahon, ‘Cold Night’ is a broody rambler, made for grey mornings and stomping through puddles in the rain. Thomas’s gentle voice wraps around a slow, steady beat as delicate strings float around the arrangement, like the silver lining on a cloud.
In celebration of the track, Keating shares the top five Christmas gifts he’s wishing for this season.
1. New guitar pedals.
I sold a lot of my old analog pedals and now I want them all back 🙁
2. A trip overseas.
I know this isn’t possible at the moment but that would be amazing right now. I would love to be able to go to New Zealand without the quarantine and see my 90-year-old grandfather.
3. A piano for my house.
I would love an amazing upright piano at home to play and write on. Actually, I would love one in my studio too! So two pianos!
4. A few more guitars would be nice.
Maybe like a vintage Maton acoustic or Gibson.
5. I would love some new studio headphones.
I have been using the same pair for years now and they are peeling away at the ears. I often finish sessions after wearing them and it looks like my ears are covered in soot.
