Agora num registo mais calmo, este duo surpreendeu-me pela tonalidade cândida, ao mesmo tempo tão emotiva, da junção electrónica com acústica. It’s Been Good To Me é o mais recente tema dos The Nice Nice e são uma boa amostra de como emoções complexas podem ser transmitidas com recursos minimalistas. Gosto muito do vídeo e gosto muito de uma das passagens que mais me tocou “It’s Been Good To Me, But I Need Change”. Dadas as reviravoltas da minha vida nos últimos meses, não me podia sentir mais sintonizada! Deixo-vos informações sobre o tema e sobre o duo.
Sobre It’s Been Good To Me:
Floating on a carpet of AIR-esque synths, acoustic splashes, moody vocals and heavenly brass comes “It’s Been Good To Me” by Munich based Australian/German collaboration The Nice Nice. Following on the heels of previous singles “Lying”, “Out of Ideas”, and “Hi Talk”, alongside their debut EP, released with a Limited Japanese Edition CD featuring Bonus Live Tracks and sold out cassette edition featuring covers of the Alessi Brothers seminal ‘Seabird’ b/w Chris Rea’s masterpiece ‘Josephine’. 2019 has seen The Nice Nice perform to sold out shows around Germany, and travel to Tokyo for a fashion collaboration with Japanese brand Bedwin & The Heartbreakers. While in Japan, The Nice Nice teamed up with renowned artist / renaissance-man Kunichi Nomura, (“Isle of Dogs”,“Lost In Translation”) on a video shoot for melancholic mood-lifter “It’s Been Good To Me”, filmed by British DOP, Christopher Nicholls & Directed by Brazilian, Gui Martinez. “It’s Been Good To Me” is in all digital stores November 8th ahead of their sophomore EP to be released later this month.
Sobre The Nice Nice:
“There was: A lonely Australian boy named Tim looking for a partner to make music with. He finds Tom, another solitary boy from Munich, not looking for anyone. After connecting with their love for Chris Isaak and Chris Rea and an outstanding consume of coffee and a lot more wine, they headed to the now infamous Marmelade City Studios to write their first jam, “Beached”.
There are now: Tim, Tom and the band, The Nice Nice. They‘re still drinking coffee and wine. But what‘s important, they self recorded and produced eight songs in six long days in the Austrian mountains. Mixed it in Paris and mastered in Belgium. The sound? Like the ease of a summer morning mixed with a rough hangover caused by the last bottle from the night before. In the air: the smell of coffee, putting the world in the right sphere again.”
