What do you get if you cross a sailor, a farmer, a barrister and a Frenchman who thinks he is Italian? A terrible joke, of course.
However, it also turns out you get an amazing band.
Andre, Rory, Rich and Jimmy got together in 2013 with one aim in mind: to make shed-loads of cash. When that failed, they decided to try making music instead.
As TwoSixOnes they write pop music that gets into bed with rock, funk and folk. You can try not to dance to their harmony-laced floor-fillers, but the reality is that resistance is futile; you may as well start wiggling your hips before you press play.
Nishe are a three-piece Alternative/Indie-Rock band based in London consisting of Giovanni Zappa (lead vocals, guitar), Harold Wilson (bass, backing vocals) and Thomas Romer-Smith (drums, backing vocals).
They played their first note together in August 2013, immediately finding the perfect alchemy that made everyone understand the band was a force to be reckoned with.
The solid, tight and crunchy sound of these three young boys with an eclectic taste perfectly matches with the songs written by Giovanni Zappa, a surprising blend of catchy melodies and energetic riffs.
Though unassuming in their simple appearance, the three guys barely out of their teens drop a payload of excitement and energy to every show, having the talent to amaze by being unexpected; they surely know how to surprise, taking it to a whole other level… they are Nishe!
Their first four song EP is now out for everyone to check out, and if you like it definitely go to see them live!
