Nicholas Krgovich (No Kids; P:ano) To Release Solo Debut 'On Sunset' October 7

“...melancholy yet propulsive soft rock that sounds like the midpoint between Dave Longstreth and Donald Fagen. You’d do well to listen to it.” — Stereogum

"It’s a polished, ambitious effort that puts melody and layered arrangements (created with composer Stefan Udell) at the forefront…” — Tiny Mix Tapes

Music savant (and NW1 client) Nicholas Krgovich, mostly known for his work with No Kids, Gigi and P:ano, will self-release his debut solo album On Sunset on October 7, 2014.

Having lived in Los Angeles for the past four years, On Sunset stands as a rich, widescreen tribute to a lost Los Angeles. Produced and mixed by John Collins (Destroyer, New Pornographers) and recorded by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Cave Singers), the album is a sweeping Technicolor extravaganza. In the tradition of experimental music masquerading as pop (Avalon, Cupid & Psyche '85, Steve McQueen), On Sunset is a lonely, glamorous, late-night answer to a city's seductive and endless sprawl.

Gossling Announces First U.S. Tour; Includes CMJ Music Marathon & Culture Collide Festival

 
"The singer-songwriter is a musical chameleon, who can churn hook-filled songs that sound like Lana Del Rey spent a lot of time listening to Coldplay…it's piano ballads with haunting melodies that will stick in your head for days." – TIME

“both dramatic and danceable” – New York Magazine

“Whatever pause this Australian's childlike voice gives you is almost immediately erased by the sophistication of what unfurls next. She's part Lykke Li, part Feist, and not an iota less interesting than either.”— Esquire

“A traditional pop sensibility structures elements of wandering, atmospheric electronica, while crescendos of rich instrumentation give the collection a classical touch. And then there’s Croome’s singular voice: Utterly sweet, but with the thick complexity of honey, rather than a childlike or cheeky bubblegum smack” – MTV World

“Melbourne’s Gossling is an act on the rise… Croome’s stunning vocals are placed on full display, backed perfectly with a rich, full musical arrangement which reveals a band at the top of their game” –
Indie Shuffle

Melbourne’s Gossling (aka Helen Croome) is set to make her North American debut with the release of Harvest Of Gold on September 23 (available HERE via Nettwerk Records). Croome’s voice has an extraordinary timbre and it’s this distinction that makes her instantly recognizable. Check out Gossling’s cover of “Riptide” by country-mate and friend, Vance Joy.

In support of the release, Croome will embark on her first proper tour of the states. Known for her enchanting live presence, dates will include a special show at Culture Collide in San Francisco and Los Angeles, before heading east for CMJ Music Marathon (dates below).
