Nicky: “Wake Up”
Nicky is a 19-year-old Swedish singer-songwriter.
On his debut track “Wake Up”, much has been made of the fact that the cherubic face just doesn’t match Nicky’s rich, gravelly vocals.
While it’s true that there’s something of a novelty value when he first opens his mouth, once you get over it you’re left with a remarkably crafted acoustic pop track (his first song, written when he was only 15) with the maturity and depth of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits and the contemporary quirkiness of The Tallest Man On Earth.
A low-key release, “Wake Up” shows great potential and should be huge if it manages to catch the Ed Sheeran youth appeal market.
Trust Fund: “Cut Me Out”
Trust Fund is one-man garage rock act Ellis Jones from Bristol, England.
Until now relegated to small cassette releases on bedroom labels, Ellis has recently signed with Turnstile for the release of his (official) debut album No One’s Coming For Us.
