Rrainbow

Following on from the release last autumn of his acclaimed album, ‘Space of a Second’, psychedelic pop maverick nick nicely returns with a new single ‘Rrainbow’, released on March 2nd through Lo Recordings.

One of many highlights from nicely’s long anticipated ’Space of a Second’, ‘Rrainbow’ is a hauntingly introspective two and half minutes of melancholy lo-fi psyche pop. Much like its parent album ‘Rrainbow’ defies easy appraisal but rewards repeat listens as the subtleties of nicely’s production reveal their secrets.

“His star is firmly in the ascendent once more…” – Record Collector

“Space of a Second is truly in a field of its own, and is unlike any other album that you’re likely to hear this year. If we ever get the chance to hear the Beatles “Carnival of Light”, I have a sneaking suspicion that it’ll sound a little like this.” – The Active Listener

“this atypical and unparalleled album” – The Strange Brew

“Lo-fi superguy… Great psych-pop” – Complete Music Update

“Psychedelic specialist nick nicely breaks his long silence with a futuristic and heavily layered album” – Gig Slutz

 

 

“Prime shoegaze bliss…” – Pitchfork

“Profoundly lysergic …perfect pop” – Clash

“Blissfully psychedelic” – FACT

The single comes complete with tripped out electronic remixes from veteran New York producer Rusty Santos, whose credits include production work for Animal Collective, Panda Bear and Ariel Pink and Flemish trio, and new Lo Recordings signings, VUURWERK, who deliver a remix that lies uneasily between the extremes of ethereal ambience and industrial noise.

Over 30 years on from his debut single nicely’s music, to quote The Guardian’s Alexis Petridis, remains “unique, almost inexplicable…” and with a new generation of psychedelic bands looking to him for inspiration his idiosyncratic take on pop music is more relevant than ever.
