Nikko


There are multiple artists by this name: 1/ A post-rock/gothic country band from Brisbane, Australia. 2/ A character in the Musical Nickelodeon Movie 'Spectacular!' played by Nolan Gerard Funk. - 1/ "Hovering between melancholic barroom balladry and thunderous post-rock, Nikko inhabit a niche in the Brisbane music scene all of their own, a Gothic Western sound that lays the atmospherics on thick and never lets the tension slip… a force to be reckoned with."

Brendan Telford, Time Off Magazine Currently based in Brisbane, Nikko was founded in 2005 by Ryan Potter (vocals, guitar and lyrics), Jackson Briggs (guitar), Sam Whiting (bass) and Blair Westbrook (drums). Nikko's debut album, The Warm Side (2010, Tenzenmen/FUSE) is a collection of nine songs written between 2007 and 2009. The Warm Side has received much critical acclaim since its 2010 release, with Brisbane's RAVE Magazine giving the album 4 and 1/2 stars, saying that "For a debut album, it is pretty much as close to perfect as you can get." The Warm Side also received highly positive reviews in Time Off, Scene, Mess+Noise and The Canberra Times, and single 'Wedding Song' was named RAVE’s Single of the Week. Following the largely underground success of The Warm Side and subsequent Australian tours, the band released a live recording entitled Live at The Tote in December of last year.

The release received 4 and 1/2 stars in Time Off Magazine with reviewer Scott Thompson describing it as demonstrating “One of the most accomplished bands in the genre at the height of their power.” Nikko’s latest release, a double A-side single entitled About the Spirit/Smoke Alarms, features two new tracks taken from the band’s upcoming sophomore album, due for release later this year. These two tracks demonstrate a stylistic change in direction that showcases frontman Ryan Potter’s skills as a songwriter and lyricist, along with the band’s collective ability to craft these skills into distinctive and compelling arrangements. The double A-side single is currently available for pre-order as a limited edition 7” vinyl from http://nikko.bandcamp.com/ After months spent putting the final touches on their new album, Nikko are keen to hit the road and will embark on an east coast tour over the first weekend of September (the 1st to the 4th) in support of the singles’ release… Website: http://nikkoband.blogspot.com/ Music & Downloads: http://nikko.bandcamp.com/ Email: nikkomusic@hotmail.com Read more on Last.fm.
