NICK MULVEY+ ALL WE ARE

Nick Mulvey releases his second album Wake Up Now in September via Fiction Records. The second track from the album ‘Myela’ perfectly harnesses those two very distinct elements that Nick does so beautifully, sewing together electronics and off-kilter rhythms with his atmosphere-drenched, incisive songwriting. It’s capped by an undeniable groove to its mantra-like refrain and was written alongside one of Nick’s close friends and a new member of his band, Federico Bruno.

The song was born out of the refugee crisis, and a real desire to help in a heart-breaking situation. To report, not to preach. Nick is supporting Help Refugees UK with the track’s release, and will perform as part of the Give A Home For Human Rights Campaign on 20th September in association with Amnesty.

At a time of great uncertainty, it helps to surround yourself with those things you trust, and so marks the timely return of the reliably brilliant Nick Mulvey. His standout debut album, First Mind, in 2015 was the introduction of an artist who shirked the conventional and side-stepped the expected. It was a record of opposing shades, all leftfield rhythms, and harnessing an exquisitely natural guitarist doing extraordinary things, painting unique colours across a very moreish collection of songs. It was quite peerless, and translated to the stage alongside a fine collection of talented players that formed his band.

Plus support from ALL WE ARE

Since releasing their Dan Carey produced (Kate Tempest, MIA, Hot Chip) debut album on Domino/Double Six in February 2015, All We Are have been lighting up festivals all over the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe with their psych driven atmospheric shows and groove based anthems.

As their debut proved, the Liverpool three-piece embraced everything groove based and psychedelic about music, from soul, hip hop to pop music crafting an intoxicating album full of warmth, emotionally astute lyrics and irresistible rhythms.

With their second album in the making and drawing influences from post-punk, early 80s/90s electronic music and more, including recent personal observations and experiences, expect a darker, yet brighter, punchier and evermore urgent All We Are filling the void.
