A band that prides itself on hailing from a musical era where the quality of music and lyrics still hold significance has consistently imbued each release with originality and instant appeal. And let’s talk about it; their self-titled debut was enough testament to showcase Lucky Number Nick’s commitment to authenticity and emotional depth. They take us back to that golden age, hitting us right in the nostalgia, and still add those modern-day twists to keep everything intriguing. I recently discovered them through a friend, and they are now one of my proudest musical discoveries of this year.

Lucky Number Nick is a fusion of tradition and innovation, a celebration of Root’s rich musical tapestry, and a platform for the cultivation of the cultural impact of music. Conceptually conceived in the vibrant musical landscape of Los Cojones, CA, Lucky Number Nick emerged from the creative vision of Philip Kolarov and Nick Alamanov. Together with Alexander Hristov and Konstantin Tomov, this collective embarked on a journey to create music that resonates deeply with audiences around the world.

Lucky Number Nick couldn’t be more excited to announce their upcoming London show, which will happen this coming April 24, 2024. It is around this time that the band is also celebrating the 10th anniversary of their self-titled debut, and to celebrate that milestone, they performed a captivating rendition of one of their very first compositions, “First Wave for the Day.”

I’ve been watching that live performance on YouTube on repeat. This is authentic music that hits you right in the feels. The instrumental prowess and just how everyone gives heart and soul are evident in every note, rhythm, and chord struck here. The end result is something catchy, infectious, and timeless.

The song grows on you the more you listen to it, its haunting blend of rhythm and melody sticking in your head for the rest of the day. This is exactly what good music feels like.

Couldn’t help but go a trip down their catalog lane, and that’s when I discovered another ear candy: “Belvedere Tiburon” is a song for the ages, and the brilliantly executed and performed music video elevates the stunning music to new heights. The concept video perfectly captures the feeling of persistent optimism and anxious anticipation, complementing the nostalgia of the 1970s with its lyrical vulnerability. It really resonates with the song’s vibe.

Well, Lucky Number Nick is really who they think he is. An authentic band dedicated to preserving the purity of rock music in the best way they know how.

I’m going to attach this moving rendition to a special tune and hope that you’ll find it as captivating as the band had in mind when performing it.
