Brisbane's psych-pop powerhouse Nice Biscuit today release their debut 7', Captain '/Fairfield of Dreams, on Break Even Recordings. The double-A side release features two groove-ridden odysseys that showcase the band's ability to hypnotise with their elastic riffs and magnetic charm.
'Captain' the A-side of the upcoming 7", was launched in February as the first release on Break Even Recordings. The track premiered on triple j and was quickly added to rotation on Double J and triple j Unearthed, as well as amassing support across community radio and a host of blogs.
The six piece will be hitting the road in support of psychadelic greats The Brian Jonestown Massacre in June, opening proceedings at The Northern in Byron Bay on Wednesday, June 6 and the Metro Theatre in Sydney on Friday, June 8.
Nice Biscuit is Bun Mulheran (guitar, keys, harp, vocals), Billie Star (vocals, guitar, percussion), Gruce Cuell (vocals, guitar, percussion, keys), Jess Ferronato (guitar, vocals), Kurt Melvin (drums) and Nick Cavendish (bass). The band began after a set of friends and acquaintances were invited to play a one-off performance at a party on a property, first meeting to rehearse in the Spring of 2016. That first show did more than exceed the expectations of mates and the Nice Biscuit was born.
Word spread of their live performance, a world of james tinged with the colours of Krautrock, psychadelic surf garage and a pinch of pop. Matching handmade costumes join synchronised movements, and a hive-mind conciousness that spreads to the crowd- the Nice Biscuit live experience is immersive, visceral and never void of purpose. They have been invited to support acts such as The Growlers, Allah-Las, Jen Cloher, The Murlocs and Gabriella Cohen, and have enchanted the stages at A Festival Called PANAMA, Gizzfest, Blurst of Times, and the Oxford Arts Factory 10th Birthday Party. In 2017 they won tirple j Unearthed's competition to showcase at BIGSOUND, later named one of the top 10 bands at the conference.
