Brisbane's Nice Biscuit creates their distinct vision of psychedelic and garage rock by blending together harmonised vocal melodies and driving instrumental grooves. Vocalists Billie Star and Grace Cuell, bring their ethereal and powerful vocal harmonies, synchronised movement and elaborate matching costumes to create a visually stunning live performance. Nick Cavendish (bass), Jess Ferronato (guitar) and Kurt Melvin (drums), offer fuzzy instrumentals, melodic lead guitar sections and tight rhythms that combine to create a swirl of psychy sonic exploration that can't be missed. Their debut LP Digital Mountain (2018) gained wide acclaim by psych fans in Australia, UK and US with highlight singles Captain, Fairfield of Dreams & Digital Mountain Sparrow. The band generated significant media buzz in the UK - They were listed one of as NME’s ‘10 new bands to watch at the Great Escape’ and a ‘Band not to miss at Sound City Liverpool’ by Get Into This. Nice Biscuit returned in December 2020 with their much anticipated single Fem Chem, which featured on their EP Create, Simulate, released internationally in February 2021. Create, Simulate received rave reviews and national radio-play and showcases the bands deeper, darker pop-injected psych. Later in 2021 they released their second EP Passing Over that boasts a lighter side of the Biscuits with elongated instrumentals building to smooth, danceable, grooves, taking space to tell a story sonically and lyrically. They released these contrasting EPs on vinyl as a double EP Create, Simulate / Passing Over selling out in record stores and online sales. In support of the vinyl release, the band toured AUS to packed out venues, including two sold out Melbourne shows. This May/June Nice Biscuit are embarking on a UK/EU co-headline tour with band members’ (Grace) new project Baby Cool (INSERT TOUR DATES HERE WHEN ANNOUNCED?). In the meantime, expect some exciting new tracks from Nice Biscuit in 2023 ahead of their much anticipated third album to be released in early 2024 through psych heavy weights Levitation/Greenway (US) and Bad Vibes/Fuzz Club (UK).
Marrying psychedelia with folk and a touch of country, Baby Cool is the latest side project by Nice Biscuit co-front woman Grace Cuell. “The songs are deeply sentimental. I have a lot I need to sing about to help me make sense of this earthly pod I have been gifted. If in singing these words out loud, I can help others find solace in knowing that we’re all out here flailing about in the cosmos, then it feels good to me.” - Cuell Earlier this year, Baby Cool hit the road with the Babe Rainbow, performing on the renowned stages of the Princess Theatre (Brisbane) and the Metro Theatre (Sydney). With Cool’s live band composed of members from Nice Biscuit, The Flamingo Jones and Cigarny Weaver, it is no surprise these shows were met with rave reviews. Baby Cool is set to release music later this year via Virgin Music Australia, Greenway Records (US) and Bad Vibes (UK).
