NRVT’s Happy Halloween ‘Nuttall Street Burglars’ Composition to Ride The Waves Forever

NRVT’s Happy Halloween ‘Nuttall Street Burglars’ Composition to Ride The Waves Forever

NRVT strikes back with his annual Halloween trick or treat ‘Nuttall Street Burglars’.

The thought of stepping into the unknown on a Halloween’s night might be scary for some, yet for others it’s what makes life worth living. So here we are again standing on that thin line between life and death, biscuits and gravy, strawberry syrup and ice cream. Blue moon, full moon for Halloween 2020, what does it all mean? The night sky tells its tale on the 31st October 2020 and then 19 years later in 2039.

Some people believe in ghosts, like to get spooked, or play the part of the spook who spooks the spook. Even though Halloween has scary elements, the children are far too excited to be scared, until the gate opens and they see a face, chest starts pumping, there’s no time to waste, Scream! Kids start running, leave tracks in the dirt like laser beams. Witches on broomsticks you know the scene.

The question remains unanswered, whether ‘Nuttall Street Burglars’ is a trick or treat Halloween theme. Ghosts know who to frighten, and others keep on living the dream. ‘Nuttall Street Burglars’ is for music lovers, a song that charts the journey from childhood dreams to adulthood and ends with a rap finale. The song is a blend of Hip Hop, Rap, Dance, Electronic, and a sprinkle of Pop.

We said NRVT would be back and here he is, so give NRVT a buzz up on instagram – show some love this Halloween.

‘Nuttall Street Burglars’ can be found on Apple music, Deezer, Spotify, Tidal, Amazon, and other online stores.

Adam Frankenstein: Search for a Soul Wins Book Prestigous Award

Frankenstein lives again in this short story collection that has won awards and critical acclaim.

Adam Frankenstein: Search for a Soul by Sheila English is a collection of short stories that has recently won the prestigious Literary Titan Award and garnered praise from readers.

Mary Shelley’s creature is over 200 years old, but the popular science fiction character still intrigues readers and critics alike. Each story gives insight to the creature and his life including a run-in with none other than Dracula.

“Poetically, and by murky gaslight, Sheila English dazzles the reader with pressing adventures and a companion by our side.” – Literary Titan

The collections include four Adam Frankenstein stories in different eras. As he searches for his humanity in London brothels and French villages, he finds that sometimes his greatest obstacles are humans themselves.

“It is almost inconceivable that anyone would try to add to the Frankenstein legend, but this collection does so and does so well.” – Paul Broome Amazon 5-Stars
