Modern Vampires - Ruth Shave and Nathan Cable

Nathan Cable tells bittersweet stories contemplating the quieter moments of people’s lives. His modest storytelling and stark acoustic arrangements are anchored by Ruth Shave’s mellow and broad synthesisers, forming the sound of Modern Vampires.

Their songs, inspired by true events from Cable’s hometown in the West Country, narrate moments of weariness and disillusionment, violence and sacrifice, resilience and fate. The duo has produced a collection of vignettes that resonate with the aching restlessness of our modern times.
