When Melbourne duo nyck (pronounced n.y.c.k) uploaded their debut single ‘Decision’ to Triple J Unearthed in 2016, they had no idea that it would end up touching the hearts of so many. In just a few weeks, they were Triple J Unearthed Feature Artists, supporting Emma Louise at The Corner, and playing their sold out single release show at Wesley Anne in Melbourne. In the months that followed, they toured the east coast of Australia, and most recently, secured a national tour supporting Amy Shark in March and April.
nyck’s second single ‘Speak My Mind’ is a beautifully melodic, melancholic, and romantic exploration into love and life in the city. Lyrically, Speak My Mind is a pre cursor to Decision, exploring the days and weeks before the break of a long term love. The turning point in a relationship to which ‘Decision’ was the breaking point..
Produced by Melbourne musician, Hayden Calnin, Speak My Mind marks a shift in energy for the duo, who pair the same rawness with beautiful harmonies and soulful, lush instrumentation.
Supporting the music, nyck will launch a long term collaboration with renowned British fashion photographer, Ben Morris. A New York local, Morris has been published in some of the world’s most acclaimed fashion magazines, including British Vogue, Vogue UA, Elle, Numero, Muse, Interview, Wonderland, Arena Homme + and Purple. For each of nyck’s forthcoming releases, Morris has taken a collection of photographs on film that are directly inspired by the music.
nyck are touring nationally with Amy Shark in March and April, before launching Speak My Mind with an East Coast tour of their own in late April.
