SUPPORT FOR NELIPOT
“Reminiscent of everyone from LCD Soundsystem to Pulp via the visceral side of The Vaccines, their punchy, illicit charm is bowling over fans Down Under.”
– Clash Magazine (UK)
“Nelipot confirming my suspicions that you are very much a band you wanna see live”. – 4/5 stars
– Declan Byrne – triple j (AUS)
“The band combine the kind of building, indie synths you’d find in your favourite Foals song with Brit-pop-inspired vocals. Hudson Lane feels instantly familiar; we’ll be keeping a close eye (or ear) on this talented group”.
– Stack Magazine (AUS)

NSW Central Coast-based indie-rock trio Nelipot have just unveiled tour dates and their striking new single ‘Garden Hose Rainbows’ – engineered and mixed by Jack Nigro (DMA’s, Skegss) at The Grove Studios, Mangrove Mountain NSW.
‘Garden Hose Rainbows’ is a modern nod to the golden era of brit-pop and dance-punk, drawing inspiration from the likes of mainstay acts The Vaccines, LCD Soundsystem and Pulp. Opening with steadfast drums and ethereal synths, the track gradually builds with throbbing bass, buzzing guitars and the endearing vocals of frontman Jordan Olyslagers, before bursting into its power-pop soaked anthemic chorus.
Olyslagers describes the motivation behind ‘Garden Hose Rainbows’:
“With a little abstraction, the song articulates the struggle between one’s contentment with themselves as ordinary, average, and mundane, against the ubiquitous longing to be special, to be spectacular, to ‘maximise potential’”.
To coincide with the release, the band will perform five shows across the East Coast, which will include stops in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. This continues on from a relentless touring schedule where the group have supported the likes of Boo Seeka, Lime Cordiale, The Jungle Giants, Alpine and Luca Brasi.
Previous releases have been strongly supported by a slew of tastemakers including triple j, KCRW (USA), KEXP (USA), FBi, 3RRR, 4ZZZ, Radio Adelaide, ABC’s Rage, Pilerats, Indie Obsessive(USA) and Savage Thrills.
In the coming weeks Nelipot will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘Garden Hose Rainbows’.
