Nick Mulvey announces Birmingham show

June 27, 2017 in News

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. It came to life during final sessions with producer Dan Carey at his South London based studio. 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.
