Griffith’s most sincere body of work to date, Something I Once Heard speaks honestly and unashamedly about a range of significant life events experienced over the course of five years, from overcoming a serious diagnosis to new relationships and personal growth.
Nick Griffith is a household name on the Sydney indie music circuit, known for his contributions to Big White, Bored Shorts and High-tails. With Big White, Griffith has thrice toured Europe and the States supporting acts like Ty Segal, Gang of Four and Black Lips, while High-tails single 'Bending Over Backwards’ saw full rotation on triple j and was the ninth-most played song on the station in the year it was released. On Dec 15, he will grace the stage at The Midnight Special joined with special guests The Brights.
“[‘Porto Song’ is] a gorgeous jangly number from local stalwart Nick Griffith. When he sings “You’re windswept and rosy”, it just makes me imagine I’m waiting for my fish ‘n’ chips order on a pier somewhere on the south coast.” – Robert Moran, Sydney Morning Herald
“Exploring the most abject corners of post-punk and 80s-inspired pop, 7am [is a] bold, warm-hearted debut." – The Fader
"Nick Griffith tempers luxuriant yacht-pop arrangements with lo-fi touches across the sunny 7am." – Bandcamp (New & Notable)
"Every musical knick-knack of the record comes alive with this sense of personality, feeling as though it’s been playfully pieced together via its DIY recording into a curious, affectionate whole." – FBi Radio (Feature Album)
"Nick's contribution to Sydney music over the years and over many projects is demi-god level good. Any time he drops something new, you know I'm listening." – Dave Ruby Howe, triple j Unearthed
