Currently splitting time between Arizona and Los Angeles, the singer-songwriter arrives fully formed with the release of his debut single “The Falls," produced by Elliot Jacobson (Vérité, Allie X) and distributed via AWAL.
“The song is about how grief can feel like being stuck beneath a waterfall,” Nic says. “How loss can derail you, overtake you, numb you, and sometimes it takes years to pull yourself out of the cycle.”
The track begins with a spoken word intro, written by Catherine Pond, a Los Angeles-based poet and PhD candidate at the University of Southern California, a week after she heard the original demo.
“I'm sick and tired of being angry at God. I see angels where they don’t belong, slithering head first down the length of my neighbor’s roof. Petrichor, wild long hair. In the winter light, every waterfall was you. In other words, the sound never stops. Longing claws around in me, blue-tipped, with a face like an artificial flower. It’s cold as hell but I’ll tell it to you
straight. I would’ve loved you in the fold, in the falls, I would’ve loved you.”
Album artwork is by S.S. Powell, a Brooklyn based visual artist and musician (Surfbort, Ice Balloons).
