Billy Nelson, "We Could Be Friends"
Billy Nelson, co-founder/co-writer of indie synth-folk outfit Whistle Peak, has ventured out solo to write, record, and produce his "post-Genesis Phil Collins record." Inspired by the reemergence of neon clothing and songs about butts, Billy has decided to stop pretending and embrace his inner Robert Palmer. With promiscuous tastes ranging from Frank Ocean, Liars, Kanye West, Run the Jewels, Disclosure and Blood Orange, Billy makes music that is strange, unpredictable and hauntingly fun synth-pop. While dark and introspective, there is levity and humor underlying his explorations of existential crises that accompany love, sex, marriage, and fatherhood. "We Could Be Friends" digital single is out now on iTunes, Amazon and other worldwide digital retailers.
