By Black Nielson
The words "best kept secrets" in anyone's biog may as well read "Never really made it... yet" and the story of Black Nielson would certainly go some way to supporting the theory. Smatters of lost releases on lost labels and nothing really to write home about other than a few knowing nods from "names" in the business. But Black Nielson have the sort of sound that can make it big time anytime as well as spend an eternity in the shadows: inoffensive, strum-a-long, sing-a-long, indie that girls like and boys appreciate. The likes of Athlete have proved there's a very healthy career to be made from it and Snow Patrol did their fair share of waiting round before suddenly being everyone's cup of tea. Sweet sounding vocals to give that "I'm a cute defenceless indie boy" feel on a crowd pleasing song, go on... download it and give them a monetary hug!
