STREAM DEBUT SINGLE HUMAN BY NIGHT:
“Lo-fi bedroom pop with enormous imagination. Unkempt pop with a DIY feel. ‘Wrinkle Pillow’ is a brave journey into the unknown.” – Clash
That blissful moment where we drift off to sleep at night can be the most relaxing part of the day, but for some, that moment of calm can also be a total nightmare caused by unusual sensory phenomena that lead to uninvited hallucinations.
“This song, Wrinkle Pillow was written about my Hypnagogic Hallucinations,” explains Lucky Shivers’ singer/guitarist Nicholas Stevenson, “where sometimes in a half awake state I see things that aren’t there. Like big old chandeliers, floating guitars, faces in wrinkly pillows – and the worst was a guy in white sports gear peeing in the corner. I wanted to talk about that and use some really kitsch drum samples I found.”
Wrinkle Pillow is the lo-fi, bedroom recorded B-side to Lucky Shivers’ debut single, Human By Night. A catchy slacker indie track that is accompanied by a wonderful homemade phone video made for just £10, a green screen and some tinfoil.
Human by Night is the first release from Lucky Shivers, a 4-piece made up of four friends from London and Northampton who’ve been working on a record above a karate studio in Leicester. Fronted by the half American, half illustrator Nicholas, and his long-time friend and collaborator, handsome dramatic performer Kieran, the duo are elevated substantially by the talented cat lady Jo and Claw Crane Machine expert Gareth who they met at a Christmas party.
This catchy debut single and B-side is available on a glittery, limited edition cassette at their live shows and also available now on itunes via the Shipping Forecast Music Company.
