Bio

Music to daydream to. Bursting with crunchy psychedelic textures, blissed out melodies fluttering overhead, explosive rhythms and intricate grooves whizzing by, plus subliminal nods to afrobeat, krautrock and jazz bubbling upon the horizon and melting into the kaleidoscopic haze form this swirling, vertigo-inducing mixture that takes inspiration from the past and transmits it skyward.

Beginning in early 2015, Flicker Vertigo, straight out of Melbourne, Australia, is the brain child of Nathan Nicholson. With an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of 60s psych rock, and an obsessive passion for idiosyncratic songwriting and dreamy, warped sounds, it's as much inspired by psychedelic guitar heroics as it is by the ocean and nature.

If a song started off as an empty room, Flicker Vertigo has filled the entire space with lush psychedelic colours and sounds with this on! Make sure you have room to digest that amazing outro.

More reverb than what you could poke a stick at (CLASSIC DAD SAYINGS 2K16). What a journey tho. Love that outro.
