Drawing inspiration from his experiences growing up in the small North Wales town of Flint, Nik Lloyd blends diverse musical influences like Blur, Deftones and Kendrick Lamar into his grittily poetic self-described ‘street pop’.
“My music has always been a representation of me, who I am, what I have done, what I have seen and or heard. It often deals with serious subject matters, but I want it to come across as if two lads were talking about it in the pub, or two people discussing something over a cup of tea, I always want it to feel like a transcript of a ‘real’ conversation.”
The first taster from his debut EP comes in the shape of the biting ‘Who Knew’.
Nik Lloyd will appear in Manchester:
