It didn’t take long for success to take root: Nick & June
‘s sold-out EP, followed by the debut album Flavor & Sin
, delighted music critics and drew comparisons to Angus & Julia Stone
and The Swell Season
. However, their popularity wasn’t limited to positive reviews – airplay, a song on a motion picture soundtrack and 300 live shows across Europe underscore their overall popularity.
In 2017, the band took the next step. The new album, entitled My November My
, is a concept album telling the story of ’November Boy’, a figure greatly disappointed by the world and humanity, bitter and self-righteous, yet not without the ability for self-reflection and -critique, which he does through 12 chapters, to then bid farewell. Intertextual references to Conor Oberst
, The National
or Belle & Sebastian
will blend with epic song structures incorporating a sophisticated sound with deep beats and rhythms. This lonesome-beautiful acoustic dream and fragile melancholy is brought to fruition by the extraordinary vocals of Nick & June
. There is no denying the band’s development; their uniquely delicate voices are at the heart of their newest endeavor.
