REPENT feat. Nish Goyal [+]

Free Entry

Nish Goyal

Nish Goyal, born February 1986 is a British Singer/Songwriter from Chester, UK.  Having graduated in Law, he worked as a trainee legal consultant in the city before deciding to pursue stockbroking in Frankfurt, Germany.  After a few years in the corporate sector, Nish decided to make his passion, his career.  Hence, the brand ‘Nish Goyal’ was formed in early 2011.  His music has a very indie punk feel with a touch of folk in there, and is unique in its own way.

Although he started playing music and writing from a young age, Nish kicked off to a great start with his 1st album ‘A Little Validation’, which consists of 11 songs including the favourites ‘NDE’ and ‘My Hill’. This album shows exactly what Nish is all about.  The lyrics of all the songs have a huge range and mixture of emotions, bound to get the listener into the ‘feel’ of every song.

With the success from his 1st album, the 2nd project ‘the Hedonist EP’ was launched soon after and consists of the absolute favourites, ‘Sleep’, ‘Exactly What This Is’ and ‘Girl in the Black Dress’.  As mentioned by the post on the blog My Random Jukebox, “He has this talent to use his own life experience to mould the lyrics to tell some great and at times humorous stories.”

 

Being a world traveller the past 10 years, Nish has played in gigs and open mics all around the world, including countries/states in Australia, Europe, America and Asia. His fans can look forward to the release of his third project ‘the Rage EP’ in early 2015, which is an 8 track EP focused on the issues faced us in the modern age.

The Sound You’ll Hear (aka THE SUPREME TRUTH)

GOOD STRONG MUSIC. It will be both VARIOUS and EXTRA SPESH. we do not understand the point of Rihanna but we know that Wu-Tang are forever.

Humans (aka The GOOD and the BADASS)

We play music for good people who have ears and like denim: skinny jeans, baggy jeans, cut-off into hot-pants jeans. And jeans that have Nice’d Up a Dance or two in their time

Drinking (aka The RAPTURE aka The LIBATION)

Two pint buzz is the world’s best buzz: we sell pints. Two-cocktail buzz is also excellent and often too expensive: but not here. Two for one on a variety of lip-smacking brain-shaking cocktails.

Tequila (aka The TEMPTATION of Jesus Chris)

In the year 1600, Tequila was invented by crazy a Mexican especially for lco Cestrians. THAT’s YOU! Together we will celebrate the intelligence and kindness of Don Pedro Sanchez de Tagle by letting you pay 100pesos £1 for one Tequila. Mucho Calor: No Doubt.

Chemistry Lane + support Half Avian [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter

Chemistry Lane 1

Bridging the gap between the intensity and momentum of a rock band, and the clinical electro loops of dance floor hypnosis, Chemistry Lane surf waves of paranoia that redirect your gaze toward the illusion, like slight of hand in reverse.

Influences range far and wide from shoegaze and orchestral post-rock bands like Slowdive, Spiritualized and Godspeed! You Black Emperor, to new wave groups such and Talking Heads and Echo and the Bunnymen.  Recent appreciation for bands such as Deerhunter and The Phantom Band have allowed the group to unlock a new direction.

Chemistry Lane combine the dreaminess of experimental indie with a layered instrumental depth of sound that results in powerful, almost hypnotic melodies and warm spine tingling atmospheres.

“Melody twists through a perfect storm of oceansize guitars, dark grooves and brooding beats.”

Half Avian

Half Avian 1

Experimental Pop Music, Laptop, keyboards, guitar and melodies. Nostalgic futurism. Matthew Stenning and Mike Payne
