Artist of The Month: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Tuesday 14th February 2017 | Terje

Nick Cave is a man of many different personas and alongside his band The Bad Seeds they have been dominating the music scene with their lyrical brillance for the past 30 years. 

If you haven’t heard or listened to this band before then look forward to some genius lyrics, flowy and dark melodies.  

The Australian band was started off in 1983, by founding band members Mick Harvey and Nick Cave, after the demise of their previous band The Birthday Party. They’ve come a long way since the 80’s. From songs like From Her to Enternity in 1984, Murder Ballads in 1996 and now to the Skeleton Tree that was released in 2016. Which is also the bands first new release since the tragic death of Cave's son Arthur in 2015.

All together they have released 16 studio albums from which you can find singles that are arrogant and brutal but also songs that make your heart weep.

On the 5th of December a documentary was released that reveals the grief of Nick Cave and his wife, it gives a deeper understanding into his life throughout the past two years. The film was supposed to be a performance film, yet it turned out to be so much more.
