“Piggyback” is Nick Corbin’s second single this summer. Taking inspiration from the likes of Isaac Hayes and Lonnie Liston Smith, “Piggyback” is up-tempo and simmering from the off, with synth strings building tension in the intro alongside a menacing guitar riff and haunting brass stabs.
“Piggyback” is a social commentary on the idea that we all become more successful only by associating with people higher up the ladder than ourselves. The cynicism in Nick’s lyrics is tongue-in-cheek, which is evident when he professes “I can’t pretend I would not jump on if I could…”
As was the case with previous single “Deeper In Love”, Nick is supported by a stellar line-up of musicians on “Piggyback” including Mick Talbot on Hammond and Wurlitzer and the dream team horn section of Tom White and Paul Jordanous.
