Second album from London based singer-songwriter, Cat Nickless, coming out on new imprint Round Table Records in 2018.
A cross atlantic affair inspired by her time studying in New York and recorded in London. While in NY she developed a love for photography taking a series of 35mm film photographs, inspired by this and after working with Andrew 'Woody' Woodhead (Meraqi) to craft the songs she took these same analogue principles to London’s Soup Studios working with David Holmes (Ghostpoet, Nubya Garcia, Jakob), recording on original tape machines.
But the connection wasn’t just in approach, each song was directly inspired by one of the photographs, leading to a feedback loop of creativity. The image for the title track a pastoral woodland scene became a fantastical song about hopefulness and catching lightning bugs, married to an ethereal vocal, shimmering guitars.
The Coney Island Wonder Wheel is the scene for, ‘Summertime’, which starts off as light nostalgic ode to summer love, the bright lights of the fairground, but behind the fading glitz there is greater depth though not necessarily happiness, with this resolution comes clarity. By the end the song has flipped, ending in a wailing guitar solo, though even as this fades out it reveals the light acoustic lines still present.
