One is Austria’s Eurovision 2017 star who won fans over with “Running on Air” and a series of gorgeous covers in the aftermath of the contest. The other is an up-and-coming DJ and producer based in London. And together Nathan Trent and J-MOX are taking us into summer with their debut collaboration “Secrets”.
The Spotify-friendly track comes with bright and cheery digital sounds — think electro-xylophone — and a light tropical feel. The song is largely verse-driven with Nathan really selling the pre-chorus before diving into a pop-drop carried by the instrumental.
Thematically, Nathan sings to the object of his affection. He wants to know her “Secrets” — dirty and otherwise — and is ready to let the skeletons out of his closet if she’s ready to take them. Sign us up!
As he sings: “I wanna know everything about you, wanna know what you dream at night, wanna know who you think about when baby girl I hold you tight…”
The song comes with a decidedly urban video that sees Nathan, J-MOX and their lady friends getting down at a rooftop BBQ and pulling shapes on the street.
Sweet-faced Nathan serves sensuality and sass in equal measure, proving that the boy next door has a sex drive too.
The contemporary number is further proof that “Running on Air” was a bit of a diversion for Nathan. While that was a delightful song that showcased Nathan’s personality, he’s clearly more keen on polished modern pop with a flash of swagger and attitude. Just remember his previous summer hit “Good Vibes”, which is, of course, still giving us good vibes.
