Listen To Sin City’s Debut Album ‘Welcome To Sin City’

Sin Town will be raising a glass tonight to toast the launch of Nick Armstrong and Jack Beesley‘s debut album Welcome To Sin Town. Dependent in Tāmaki Makaurau, but conceived when the bar-crawling duo “discovered themselves quarantined in a sleazy flat in Alicante, Spain with only a guitar and piano,” the extensive player was recorded in excess of a time period of 3 times with none other than Lyttelton icon Delaney Davidson in the producer’s hotseat, who also jumped in on a assortment of instruments. Whittled down from a staggering 126 demos to 13 rough diamonds (or should I say rhinestones?), Welcome To Sin City encompasses Vegas-prepared soul, sorrowful state crooning, barn dwelling rockin’ blues, a good deal of tall tales and a entire lotta heartbreak, laid down with a crack band of “employed guns” including Dave Kahn, Alistair Deverick, John Segovia and much more. Davidson defined the entire scenario in the accompanying liner notes — this is an excerpt (head above In this article for the full lowdown)…

“Was there fist pumping? Was there affordable pizza? Was there a go to from a significant-wanting investor? Certainly.&#13

Were being there tears? Ended up there ecstatic embraces? Had been there long, shiny-eyed discussions about the vibes? No.
These were being match-match touring musicians, don’t forget? Squarely in their domain.

And – as the tracks piled up below the Nudie go well with umbrella that united their perform into some frankensteined selection of blue-eyed soul, chicha, balladeering rockers and ingesting songs of really like still left behind – any deviation, any question, any questionable be aware or probable reason for additional investigation was swept aside in the juggernaut push and momentum of this squirrelly-eyed session, and a lone phrase emerged that gave it all an pretty much utilitarian clarity: “That’s Vintage Sin City”. – Delaney Davidson
