Jet’s Nic Cester Drops New Single + Announces Debut Solo Album + Tour

Nic Cester… you may know him from his days as fronting Aussie megastar for Jet, but now the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has announced he’ll release a debut solo album this November.

Full of soul, blues and Italian groove, Sugar Rush is set to be 12 tracks of killer rock n roll hooks, psychedelic tangents and bluesy feelings. The debut single ‘Psichebello‘ is a mesmerising combination of warm fuzzy guitars, sultry bass and beckoning vocals. It ventures through wickedly catchy psych-pop verses and blissful choruses before departing the realm of pop song-craft to enter one of organic experimentation. Think battling flutes, flailing organs, speeding bass and crashing drums that build into an expert return to that honey smooth chorus.To accompany – the video is just as psychedelic.

It’s obvious that after 15 years in the business, Nic Cester knows what he’s doing and if ‘Psichebello’ is anything to go by, Sugar Rush is going to be a very strong debut.

Sugar Rush is also the debut release for Mushroom’s new label for flagship bands, Bloodline, who will release the album Friday, 3 November.

To celebrate, Cester has announced two launch shows in Sydney on Tuesday, 31 October and Melbourne on Thursday, 2 November and he’ll be joined by his electrifying, all-Italian live band, the Milano Elletrica. Tickets are available now.
