DISASTER BIO:

Disaster by Nikodimos is a journey that starts off with you wanting to jump up and dance away the lockdown blues, but as the song progresses, it makes you want to lie down and reflect on how heavy this trying time really is. This song encompasses the stark reality of what lockdown is like for a working musician and for all creatives alike, and the excruciating sense of hopelessness that it brings to be constantly thrown back into these pits of isolation.

 

Multi-instrumentalist and producer Nikodimos played every instrument you hear in this track. Being able to express himself through multiple instruments is what gives him life during these dark times. DISASTER also features Nikodimos' vocals of which are warm, comforting and soulful whilst being packed with dense harmony during the beginning of the track, and become more skewed and dissociative as the journey progresses into a well of solemn despair. This is a breakthrough song for Nikodimos, as he is defining himself as not just a producer and instrumentalist, but as singer and a solo artist.

Press:

"Nikodimos has established himself as an impressive instrumentalist and producer, a member of Melbourne acts Proto Moro, Messy Mammal and Rice Wine. Nikodimos - classically trained in instrumentation and composition – likes to veer off the well-trodden path when it comes to songwriting and production." - Sydney Morning Herald, The Age

The track sees Gung swerve between ferocious bars and smooth, crooned refrains above Nikodimos’ blissed-out, flute-heavy beat – with the producer performing all instruments. - NME
