Nicholas Krgovich (No Kids; P:ano) To Release Solo Debut 'On Sunset' October 7

“...melancholy yet propulsive soft rock that sounds like the midpoint between Dave Longstreth and Donald Fagen. You’d do well to listen to it.” — Stereogum

"It’s a polished, ambitious effort that puts melody and layered arrangements (created with composer Stefan Udell) at the forefront…” — Tiny Mix Tapes

Music savant (and NW1 client) Nicholas Krgovich, mostly known for his work with No Kids, Gigi and P:ano, will self-release his debut solo album On Sunset on October 7, 2014.

Having lived in Los Angeles for the past four years, On Sunset stands as a rich, widescreen tribute to a lost Los Angeles. Produced and mixed by John Collins (Destroyer, New Pornographers) and recorded by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Cave Singers), the album is a sweeping Technicolor extravaganza. In the tradition of experimental music masquerading as pop (Avalon, Cupid & Psyche '85, Steve McQueen), On Sunset is a lonely, glamorous, late-night answer to a city's seductive and endless sprawl.

“both dramatic and danceable” – New York Magazine

Director DJay Brawner (Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran, The Used, Gym Class Heroes) who previously worked with the band on their 2011 video for “Give Me Something,” takes the viewer on an endearingly quirky (and even slightly sci-fi leaning) journey of early romance. The lead single from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album and Nettwerk debut Safety In Numbers (October 7, 2014), “Crazy For You” is quickly climbing the Triple A Top 30 Chart, landing at #18 this week.

Of the video, vocalist/guitar player Danny Bemrose says, “Although the song is hugely personal to us, it's also pretty self-explanatory and universally relatable. I think we've all secretly longed for someone at some point...some of us more than others. We wanted a video that kept the general theme of the lyrics but that was also a bit different and weird...I think we definitely got that!”
