"Think You Feel The Same" is the first track that the Bombay Bicycle Club bassist has released under his own name, and follows on from his 2017 Toothless Christmas song "Leave Take Lend".

Nash's new track is his first solo outing since the release of Bombay Bicycle Club's Everything Else Has Gone Wrong album in January, and marks the first song to drop via his own label Bangers & Nash.

When announcing his return as a solo artist via Instagram earlier this week, Nash wrote, "I'm going to start putting out tracks/Eps/albums frequently, as and when they are ready, and move away from putting out an album every few years like I have in the past. After initially spending some time writing and recording a follow-up to the first Toothless album, I realised I wanted to do things differently. The music I was writing felt increasingly more personal, both lyrically and sonically than the music I put out under Toothless. Labouring over a record for years no longer feels productive for what I'm doing, where I want to just write songs and get them out to you as quickly as possible."

Nash added, "I'm also going to be releasing music under my own name going forward, with the change in approach and sound putting music out under Toothless didn't feel right to me. I don't want to use a moniker when everything else about the project is so personal and homegrown."

It’s been some time since I’ve been in touch but I’ve got good news. I'm going to start putting out tracks/Eps/albums frequently, as and when they are ready, and move away from putting out an album every few years like I have in the past. After initially spending some time writing and recording a follow-up to the first Toothless album, I realised I wanted to do things differently. The music I was writing felt increasingly more personal, both lyrically and sonically than the music I put out under Toothless. Labouring over a record for years no longer feels productive for what I'm doing, where I want to just write songs and get them out to you as quickly as possible. I'm also going to be releasing music under my own name going forward, with the change in approach and sound putting music out under Toothless didn't feel right to me. I don't want to use a moniker when everything else about the project is so personal and homegrown. Anyway... All that to say I’m going to put out a new song later this week with much more to come over the next few months. Hope everyone is doing well, Ed x
