Tāmaki Makaurau-based artist Louisa Nicklin will be taking her debut, self-titled album on a tour across Aotearoa from May 2021. The self-titled album is set to be released on May 25th but has already given listeners a taste of what’s to come with her most recent singles ‘To Be Fine’ and ‘Water Around Her’.
Recorded by Steven Marr at Roundhead Studios the 9 track album is a collection of songs written over the past eighteen months. Joining Louisa on the album are local talents and bandmates Eamon Edmundson-Wells (Pixels) and Mason Fairey (The Naenae Express, Green Grove) and also features first time collaborators such as JY Lee (Avantdale Bowling Club, Yoko Zuna) and classical composer and cellist Antonia Barnett-McIntosh.
Louisa says “recording at Roundhead Studios with Steven Marr was a special experience and having Eamon Edmundson-Wells and Mason Fairey work with me to arrange the songs was great. The album explores ideas around peoples loneliness, my relationship to this, and my relationship to others.”
With the tour kicking off in May, Louisa Nicklin will be joined by her band as well as some talented locally sourced support acts. Tickets available from Banished Music.
