TRACK OF THE DAY : Ist Ist - Nothing More Nothing Less

As they jet off to Austin for their debut visit to SXSW, Ist Ist have today released Nothing More Nothing Less, the fourth single and the final one to be taken from their third album Protagonists ahead of its release on March 31st. To coincide with this, they've also announced two outstore shows in Leeds and Kingston in release week to accompany their biggest ever headline show at Manchester Ritz on release day.

Nothing More Nothing Less takes a step back from the guitar heavy sound of two of Protagonists' lead single Stamp You Out and Something Has To Give and is more synth-driven in its approach with the same crystal clear production giving the song a really immediate feel to it. Speaking about the song, front man Adam Houghton explains "Nothing More Nothing Less is a simple love song really written from a woman’s perspective who isn’t exactly sure what she wants."
