Four Nights

FRESH: ‘Want You Always’ – Four Nights

Four Nights debuts with “Want You Always”

Irish singer and songwriter Tommy Buckley has begun his musical journey in 2020 under the name of Four Nights and releases his debut singles, “Want You Always” and “Nothing To Say”, today and the first to come from his first EP of songs, due for release in 2021. “Want You Always” has a 80’s vibe to it and is an invitation to experience Tommy’s superb vocals as well as the catchy indie-pop soundtrack that he himself has written and produced.

“I chose to debut with two songs to give a potential audience a broader idea of what’s to come” Tommy tells us. “‘Want You Always is a high energy track inspired by 80’s radio pop. Nothing to Say is a downbeat acapella number inspired by the heavily vocoded tracks of Bon Iver and Imogen Heap. Releasing one before the other might have given the wrong idea about my music. Both songs deal with relationships at various junctures; the intense honeymoon phase and love growing cold”.

In February 2020 Dublin based Tommy set off to travel South East Asia for a year, but was forced to come home only after a month due to COVID-19. Suddenly with a lot of spare time in lockdown, he threw himself completely into music, writing more than 30 songs in a focused two month period! Now with two to kick start his career with, Tommy plans to release more in the coming months in the lead up to his debut EP, which is as yet untitled. We will certainly be following Four Nights and look forward to his EP and what else Tommy has to offer.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
