Following a stunning set at Electric Picnic Nick Mulvey has announced a headline show in Whelans on the 9th of December. Tickets priced at €15 go on sale this Friday at 9am from ticketmaster.

Nick Mulvey releases a new single, Cucurucu, on the 22nd September through Fiction Records and supports Elbow at London’s iTunes Festival on 12th September.

The Summer of 2014 has remained as ever fruitful for Nick Mulvey as this his breakthrough year has already been for him, and he returns to arguably the song that broke him, his most infectious and most ‘pop’ moment to date, Cucurucu.

Having filled the tents to bursting point, and commanded huge audiences to festival crowds throughout the Summer, from Glastonbury’s Pyramid stage to Green Man and with a Bestival appearance still to follow, Nick Mulvey’s 2014 promises much more from what has already been a hugely eventful first eight months.

Cucurucu is immediate in the sense that the melody lingers, and the beat, typically of Nick’s music, shuffles infectiously. The lyrics borrow, in part, from DH Lawrence’s poem, ‘The Piano’. It is one of the defining moments from his critically acclaimed Top 10 album, First Mind.

Nick Mulvey’s Irish dates:

9th December – Whelans
10th December – The Limelight Belfast
11th December – Triskel, Christchurch Cork
