Nika Mo (alt-folk project)

Melancholy-folk that makes the Boorloo 'burbs sound somewhat poetic. In 2021 Nika Mo’s trajectory has taken a tangential swerve, mundane Perth-poeticisms giving way to theatrical freak-folk with the release of the amibtious debut album Of Cloven Hoof in Honey

The debut album has been released to much local hubbub, was RTRFM's local feature album, and has been called: 'boundlessly creative, vividly imagined, and richly detailed,' (Daniel Morey, Isolated Nation). Read an album launch review from Tiffany Ha here, and the rest of Daniel Morey's album review here

 

We sometimes play as a 5 piece band with some of Perth's finest and cutest: Tom Beech (bass), Oscar Van Gass (drums), Cecilia Brandolini (viola and vocals) and Brooke Travaglini (violin and vocals). And sometimes play as a collection of experimental improvisers feigning as a folk band: Jameson Feakes (guitar, mandolin), Josten Myburgh (drums), Be Gosper (vocals, recorder), Shanae Campbell (vocals, recorder), Dan O'Connor (trumpet, percussion), Lyndon Blue (violin, vocals), Djuna Lee (double bass). 

You can grab more info, upcoming gig dates and news by following Nika Mo on Facebook, Instagram (@nikamomusic), and Bandcamp.
