Back in 2019, old friends Chris and Max got together just to make a noise. That noise seemed pretty good and the idea of a two piece was talked about but they felt limited in what could be done. So old friend Ryan got the call and in no time at all an album was ready - then the world went into pandemic shut down.
When the world woke up, the band jumped in the studio with Fucked Up’s Jonah Falco at the controls and ‘Bloody’ was made in three days. It’s a full throttle garage punk surf nasty pop ride into fun town - think Osees or Sonic Youth or Fugazi and you get the idea.
They do everything themselves - no manager, no agent, no label and with the new self released ep ‘Byfleet Dancehall Volume 1’ due December 2023 the band are ready to get out there once more.
Alessia is a London-based independent pop artist, who combines disco-funk nostalgia with a contemporary cool-pop edge. Her latest single Spicy was A-Listed on Amazing Radio and climbed to number 5 on the Amazing Radio charts.
Growing up as an only child from a broken home took its toll on Alessia and at the age of just 17 she planned her own suicide. Fortunately, she took another path, got help and decided to fight for her dream to become a musician. She now openly talks about this experience, holding music and mental health masterclasses for University students across England.
Alessia’s debut EP Modern Disco Girl is set for release in March 2024. It was produced and co- written by the legendary Will Hicks (Ed Sheeran, Jamie Lawson). She cites diverse influences including Kylie, Sigrid, The Weekend and Calvin Harris.
Ranging from the mellow sparsity of Nick’s piano/vocal serenades to full band performances which incorporate elements of blues and progressive rock, the album deals with themes of birth, loss and the varying degrees of confusion within contemporary relationships and the struggles of life.
‘…his confidence and artistry is a joy to behold in last one get the lights’
(Kate Murphy, NARC Magazine: Sept 2021)
Committed to the old school method, Nick arranged a two day session which the fundamentals of each track were recorded live, on the studio floor. Everything was recorded ‘off grid’ to allow the flow of each musician to blend naturally. “we went for the organic, live approach to recording to capture something honest and genuine”. NG
The album is out now on all major platforms, including Band Camp!
The album’s release was marked with the NG Band’s return to the Cluny 2 in Newcastle, (12.9.2021) to favourable reviews and interest. ‘last one get the lights’ was recorded at Traxx Studios by The Nick Gladdish Band and produced by John Timney. ‘American inspired, warm and gritty rock riffs’ (Rosie Murphy, NE Volume Magazine: Aug 2021)
