Nikoo signs to Beep! Beep!
Ho! Ho! Ho! We’re preparing the loudest Christmas present you’ll ever get. And you will call it: Nikoo.
Yes, it’s official and we’re more then excited to announce that Nikoo has signed to Beep! Beep! Back up the Truck.
“We have been keeping a close eye on Nikoo since day one and are great admirers of their unique sound, productivity and insanely loud live perfomance“, says co-owner and main bear Nicolai Adolfs. “Without a doubt a beautiful addition to our eclectic roster.”
The members of Nikoo first met in early 2010 in Studio 58 in Eindhoven, where they composed and recorded their self-titled debut in just three days. Follow-up ‘Friends & Family’ was laid out and recorded in the same fast pace. Just like its predecessor, the album will be distributed digitally only and sold on a ‘pay what you want’-basis. Renowned music photographer Nick Helderman (known for working with CocoRosie, Sleepy Sun and Women) has signed for the artwork of this release. The seven-track mini album is available for download on both the band and the label’s websites from Monday December 20th onwards.
Nikoo is off to a strong start in 2011 with a performance at Eurosonic 2011 on Wednesday January 12th. Both the recording of the third album and the first European tour are scheduled for the first quarter of 2011.
