Nice Biscuit Announce New Album ‘SOS’

It's out on October 4th...

Brisbane group Nice Biscuit will release new album ‘SOS’ on October 4th.

The band’s cult favourite 2018 album ‘Digital Mountain’ was an immense introduction, with a pair of EPs following in 2021.

New album ‘SOS’ builds on this. Out on October 4th – Bad Vibrations carry the honours in this country – it’s led by curious, psych-tinged garage-pop belter ‘The Star’.

A song informed by the Tarot, the lyrics urge us all to lean into our flow-state, embracing the subconscious in the process. Nice Biscuit comment…

‘The Star’ (inspired by the tarot card of the same name) is about the period of well-deserved healing and peace following big hardship. It is the follow-up to our song The Tower – that depicted chaos and challenges. 

The Star’ explores the feeling of surrendering into yourself just as you are and trusting others to guide you through challenges to usher you into a new & brighter chapter of life. ‘The Star’ was influenced by the joy of being together and peeling away the pressures and anxiety of life. It was created incidentally one morning during a songwriting session, and what felt like an ephemeral jam at the time captured a moment of taking a step back and just appreciating that time together. We felt like we could share that feeling through this song.

The accompanying music video was directed by Levi Strauss Cranston and filmed on Bundjalung Country; shot across four rolls of 16mm film, the colourful, surreal clip captures two mythical entities as they outrun three henchmen in chainmail. As you do!

Tune in now.
