Multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Nicklas Hughes began his career as a drummer for a variety of Philadelphia indie rock bands in the 2000s. A twist of fate in 2014 gave him the chance to pursue the solo project he'd been quietly working on in his bedroom studio. The independently released full-length, 'Miniature Galaxy', combined the '80s pop influences of his youth with the songwriting and production style of contemporaries like Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, Washed Out, and Bear in Heaven.
After two years of writing and recording, Nicklas releases his second self-produced solo record, 'Games' in 2016. Recorded at Sine Studios (Buried Beds, Sun Cinema), and out September 30th on Black Rd Records, 'Games' continues where 'Miniature Galaxy' left off - fusing the late '80s pop of Peter Gabriel and Fleetwood Mac with the dark moods of 2010s indie rock, electronica and dance. Lyrically, the new set of songs explores financial struggles, the death of influential figures, and the challenges of modern relationships.
Pete Hill is a musician from the Philadelphia area. He just released his full length debut, "The Bullet Tree".
