After playing bass for ten years for the much-loved Bombay Bicycle Club, who announced at the beginning of 2016 that they will be taking a hiatus, Ed Nash is now pursuing his own project. Under the name Toothless, Ed has finally unleashed the music he has been writing by himself for years, seizing the moment to share it with the world, with debut album ‘The Pace of the Passing’ set for release in January. Toothless’s music is atmospheric and eerily beautiful; a concoction of dreamy electronics and guitar lines, and entrancing melodies and vocals.
Ed invited various friends and fellow musicians to contribute to his musical vision, including Marika Hackman, Tom Fleming of Wild Beasts, Liz Lawrence and The Staves, and he produced the album with Bombay Bicycle Club’s Jack Steadman. The Pace of the Passing is a stunning solo debut from Ed, and with the evocative atmosphere it creates, it’s an album to be devoured in its entirety.
In its quest for some sonic and topical higher ground, art-rock can come off as heavy-handed and indulgent. The new material from L.A. sextet Minnow avoid those perils even as it grapples with weighty matters such as life, death and fleeting youth.”
