28th July | Exchange

After more than two years in the making, Bristol based indie-pop-brass-hop sextet Nicholson Heal are set to release their debut album, Big Jupe, on Breakfast Records. Never mind football coming home, this is the arrival we’ve been awaiting. If it’s not a high point of the summer, then I don’t know what qualifies. Their calypso-tinted riffs and rich brass elements make for an experimental pop feel, often driven by warm lyricism from frontman Nicholson. Chuck in some infectious melodies and jangly lo-fi beats and you’ve got a tune which sounds nothing short of a Beirut bootleg.

The stellar line-up features support from Katie Pham and The Moonbathers, a Sheffield based surf-pop trio whose sound is sugary sweet. Bristol’s own Two Day Coma will be performing a flurry of lo-fi-alternative tunes, followed by Green Hands performing summery riffs and melancholic, yearning beats.

Spice up your Saturday and head down to Exchange for an evening filled with lo-fi-poppy tunes from Nicholson Heal. Big Jupe will be released by Breakfast Records on June 28th, so be sure to grab a ticket for their show on that very same day.
