NEXUS – “Shrinking Man”

The last time we heard from Athens’ NEXUS, was February 2022, and now Mike Pougounas is back with a new single, named the “Shrinking Man“, which was released May 13. Pougounas plays keyboards, vocals and programming and is joined on this track by Dalai Cellai on cello, whom is part of the German Performance Art ensemble, Cirque Bouffon.

There is such an overwhelming sense of a loss of self in this track between the content of the lyrics, Pougounas‘ vocals and the extraordinary tone of the cello. There is a simplicity in the music that lends itself to the tale of a man that had a wonderful talents, that were powered by love, but without it he withered and has a rather unfortunate ‘accident’. The “Shrinking Man” by NEXUS is wonderfully poignant gothic fare.
