Nick Wilson has racked up over 80 million streams on Spotify alone with hits including “Miles Apart” and “Headlights.” His latest single “Enough to Know You” is an emotional track that tackles the whirlwind of emotions that follow an unexpected break-up.
Wilson shared the video for the song, a one-shot cinematic video, which puts an imaginative twist on the song’s meaning. A man in military attire regains consciousness on a desolate beach, but where did he come from and how can he reach safety? The attention of an enemy plane establishes the context as being World War II, before an unusual contrast soon develops. His situation is increasingly desperate, but there’s a serenity to the moment too.
Directed by Bjorn Franklin and Johnny Marchetta (Gabrielle Aplin, Nina Nesbitt, Twin Atlantic), the video follows the lead character played by rising actor Will Fletcher (The Girl Who Fell, Let The Right One In).
“Enough To Know You is about being broken up with, but realising that the time you spent with them is worth more than the bitterness and resentment of hating them for it. At its heart, it’s a song about letting go. To me there’s just something both heart-breaking and heart-warming about that moment of clarity in moving on and being okay with it. It’s the hardest thing in the world to come to terms with the fact that someone no longer wants you, but sometimes, being able to have shared a part of your life with that person is enough to let them go,” said Wilson.
A 25-year-old artist from Buckinghamshire, Nick Wilson’s sound hints at elements of Noah Gundersen’s raw intimacy, the mournful laments of early Bon Iver and LANY’s flair for melody. He’s earned countless international New Music Friday playlists on Spotify and has toured with Gabrielle Aplin and Dotan.
High profile fans are also becoming enamored with his growing talents. Demi Lovato picked Nick as her favorite new artist during an Instagram live conversation with Sam Smith, while collaborators have included Martin Garrix, the Grammy-nominated Jonny Coffer (Beyoncé, Kodaline) plus Lewis Capaldi’s collaborators Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway.
