Fast Five: Nicholas James Mallins



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I started as a teenager. I was a bit of a classical geek at first then britpop finally caught up with me. I’ve never considered music a career. It’s something I’m compelled to do, but I’d be foolish if expected my spotify streams to pay the rent.

How would you describe your music?

Electro baroque dream pop.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I’ve been working on my first triptych in EVE studios, a cool, inspirational place in Stockport. The first movement is out March 9th and the full collection will be available on limited edition vinyl in the summer. I’m soon to announce a series of small intimidate shows across Europe.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

David Bowie. No explanation needed…

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Funeral, the debut album by Arcade Fire. It’s a beautiful piece of art. I attach so many good memories to that album and even now there are tracks on there that have me in floods of tears.
