Bio

New EP 'Arms Wide Open' May 19th.

_________________________________________________

'With a psychedelic sound conjuring imagery of summer and 7" records, The Lovely Days are creating a melody-driven soundscape that nods to superheroes like Tame Impala, ELO and Alabama Shakes, emanting musical vibes of the 60's and 70's' - AIR (Australian Independent Record Labels Association)

'Mixed by Eric J (Flume, Chet Faker, Flight Facilities), “Mornington” has the retro transplant qualities of Tame Impala, with psychedelic hazy guitar lines and spine-tingling harmonics. Vocalist Tennyson Nobel‘s striking falsetto glides over an infectious hook and shimmering, swirling layers' - BestBefore.com

'Arms Wide Open EP follows last year’s debut self-titled EP and stands as a polished, deeply welcoming and imaginative sonic adventure, jam-packed with old-school jangle-rock harmonic purity, all pulled together with an inescapably modern sensibility' - The Music.com (Australia)

'(Mornington) Combining brightly lit guitar tones with syncopated melodies and percussion so crisp it could deflect bullets, it’s a track which doesn’t simply pick and choose at what’s been done before, rather taking those foundations laid by the past and building a monumental structure upon them' - hhhappy.com (Australia)

_____________________________________________________

"Arms Wide Open is a new collection of songs about welcoming the power of possibility into your life. It explores hopefulness, vulnerability, openness & retreat; but learning how to deal with life’s uncertainty and that it doesn’t always go the way we plan." Tennyson Nobel / The Lovely Days.

Like many bands, The Lovely Days started in a garage but with a bit of a difference– brothers Holden and Tennyson Nobel were only five and seven at the time. Most days, they squeezed in behind the Mitsubishi to learn their chops from their songwriter Dad. It was the start of a mad, musical immersion - Mozart one day, McCartney or Radiohead the next.

As soon as they got their drivers licences, they hightailed it to Melbourne from hometown Mullumbimby and hooked up with old school buddy Stephen Dickie and new found friend Jackson McIvor to form The Lovely Days.

The Lovely Days emanates musical vibes resonant of the 60’s and 70’s: not to recreate a golden age but purely to invent a new one, authentic, hopeful and always in a groove with stand out harmonies and passionate musicality.

The Lovely Days are; Tennyson Nobel [Keyboards, Vocals] - Holden Nobel [Bass, Vocals] - Stephen Dickie [Guitar, Backing Vocals] - Jackson McIvor [Drums].

Ooo is that some reverse action at the start? This is a lot of fun and it'll definitely get you up and moving, but if that doesn't get you, then that strong synth in the back will.

Think The Beatles' 'Getting Better' played by ELO and you're in the ballpark.
