Track premiere: Niels – ‘Ray Of Nothing’

Monday 20th, February 2017 / 10:50
By Glenn Alderson

VANCOUVER — David Nielsen lives in a trailer behind a truck near the Victoria International Airport. He’s known amongst his peers in the Victoria music community as a member of the indie band Smoke Eaters, but most recently the songwriter has ventured out on his own to create some material that veers a little more towards a deconstructed post-rock aesthetic, as opposed to the jangly pop vibes embraced by Smoke Eaters.

“The idea started for this music last summer when I was listening to a lot of old kraut rock and post punk — Can, Neu, This Heat, The Feelies, The Cure, Gang of Four, etc,” Neilsen says.

The first glimpse we get to see of this work is “Ray Of Nothing,” the debut single off his upcoming album he’s releasing under his recording moniker, Niels. The song and the soon-to-be-released tape, which it will be featured on, were recorded in a shed in his mom’s backyard. Once the tape is physically released Nielsen says he plans to perform the tracks live with a full band.

“I will be backed by members of Smoke Eaters and Naked Chillin,” he says. “I’m hoping to hit the road with these songs in the spring/summer.”

When he’s not doing music he coaches the junior boys basketball team at Parkland Secondary, which really gives you an idea just how much of a slam-dunk this project really is. Check out “Ray Of Nothing” and get ready to feel everything when the young musician drops the full album later this spring.
