Taken From His New Album ‘Holly’ Released on Innovative Leisure 4th March 2014
The new video for “This Is A Game,” is the lead single off Nick Waterhouse’s latest album Holly (due March 4 on Innovative Leisure). The new record, which follows his 2012 debut Time’s All Gone see’s Waterhouse celebrate the release by embarking on a nationwide tour.
Holly was produced by Waterhouse and Kevin Augunas (Cold War Kids, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) and includes song writing collaborations with friend Ty Segall, as well as covers of tracks by Young Holt Trio and Mose Allison among others. Of the new music, Waterhouse notes, “Thematically this record feels more like a novella, or poem with sections, or even a film, than a collection of songs. It is a work of fiction, with a protagonist, but also a floating omniscient narrator, and fragments of conversation from other characters. I was heavily influenced by my surroundings in young Los Angeles, as well as the concept of fate.”
Waterhouse grew up in Huntington Beach, CA. He established his musical sensibilities in the middle of the burgeoning Southern California psych-garage scene, while retaining his unique perspective on the spirit of American rhythm & blues and rock & roll.
