Nell Davies shares new single ‘What The Heart Wants’

‘What The Heart Wants,’ the new single from Cornish singer-songwriter Nell Davies, is an indie rock song about the evils of nostalgia. It’s about a conflict between head and heart, being stuck in a crappy situation and knowing intellectually that you have to move forward but not really wanting to, hoping that magically things might get better by themselves. The lyrics are based around the metaphor of a toxic friendship.

Like all Nell’s songs, it’s a completely DIY production, recorded in a converted pigsty in the garden of her house near Penzance, with a video filmed in one evening on her favourite local beach.

Nell Days, “’What The Heart Wants’ is about the midlife unravelling that eventually led to me starting to make music. It’s about feeling bored and dissatisfied with my life, but not really knowing how to change anything and being scared to even try.”
