News | Nick Mulvey shares fret patterns project

nick mulvey 3Fresh from a critically acclaimed debut album release and two brilliantly received Glastonbury Festival performances, opening the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday and on the William’s Green Stage on the Sunday, Nick Mulvey continues to steamroller through the summer.

Not content with the release of new single Fever To The Form next week and an upcoming tour that will take the Havana educated singer-songwriter to Australia (supporting Ben Howard), the Isle of Wight Festival and to various UK locations, Mulvey has unveiled a series of unique videos that explore the guitar fret patterns within his music. Each track from debut album First Mind is walked and talked through in videos that you can watch online now:

Mulvey, speaking of the project, explained: “When it comes to guitar playing I think of the fingers on my right-hand as a whole band. My thumb is the bassist, my index finger is the keys player and my third and fourth fingers are like a horn section. Sort of. Interlocking lines of music, simple on their own but complex in combination, have fascinated me since I started playing music as a teenager.”

Fever To The Form, a beautifully entrancing song that swoops, soars and nestles invitingly in the mind long after its four minutes are up,is released through Fiction Records on 21st July 2014. Debut album First Mind is also out now.
