Timothy Nelson & The Infidels - Debut Album "I Know This Now"
Earning themselves a reputation as “one of Perth’s must-see live acts” (Xpress Magazine), the last eighteen months has seen Nelson and his Infidels support everyone from Birds Of Tokyo, Eskimo Joe, Hoodoo Gurus, Katie Noonan & The Captains, Whitley and Lior through to Clare Bowditch. All of this has been interspersed with consistently selling out their own headline shows, and 500 capacity plus shows at that. Only 21 years old, Nelson himself has taken home the coveted WAMi ‘Song Of The Year’ Award twice (2007 and 2009).
Nelson and his Infidels' debut album “I Know This Now” was recorded with engineer James Newhouse in various studios around Perth over the course of the last 2 years. Blending the jangly, guitar heavy folk rock reminiscent of Big Star and Wilco, with a lush, melodic complexity looking to target The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, Nelson's songwriting is unashamedly the product of someone brought up on a heavy diet of The Beatles and Dylan. Fittingly, the album was mastered at none other than Abbey Road Studios in London. The Infidels are: Luke Dux (guitar), Brad Forest (bass), Ellen Oosterbaan - acoustic guitar & vocals and Peter Forgus – drums
The band will be launching the album on Saturday 25 June @ The Rosemount Hotel, Perth.
