UK Artist of the Week: Nick Kingswell

Some of you may be aware that we had a very short-lived heatwave here in the UK recently… dare I say it was too hot? Said every Brit ever. Regardless, we’re back to our normal rainy reality here in old GB and Australian artist Nick Kingswell’s latest release feels perfectly fitting for these dark, cozy days.

Nick’s latest single “Deep Blue” channels the likes of RY X as sparse, lo-fi soundscapes are met with Nick’s rich, warm vocal, creating a sound that is undeniably ethereal. The single is accompanied by Nick’s B-side single “Money In The Bank”; an equally mesmerising song that takes the listener on an emotional rollercoaster, as intricate guitar strums rumble quietly underneath Nick’s wonderfully poignant lyricism. Fans of Sufjan Stevens will feel at home here.

Nick grew up in Phillip Island, Victoria in Australia where he was heavily influenced by Carole King and Leonard Cohen. He has worked as a session guitarist for many years as well alongside Guy Sebastian, The McClymonts, and Samantha Jade. With a critically acclaimed debut album already under his belt, Nick hopes to immerse listeners further with his latest singles—and we can’t wait to hear what he gets up to next.

“Deep Blue / Money In The Bank” is in stores now.
