SonOfOld is the project of South African singer songwriter, Nic Olsen. Olsen is best known as one of the front men for early 2000‘s alternative rock band Perez. The band enjoyed success with songs like ‘Picture Perfect’, ‘Dreams and Troubles’ and ‘Wasted Out’.
Nic was a member of The Parlotones for a short while in 2009 and contributed to the band’s song writing up until 2018. Notable tracks include the band’s well-known hit “Push me to the Floor”.
Today sees the release of new single “Father Father” taken from the upcoming EP Ghosts, which is out in March 2022 via Just Music. With the introduction of Tom Hughes (Fuzigish / Vulvodynia) on drums, SonOfOld has a much more potent rhythmic drive when compared to the 2020 release. The sound is heavier, more guitar orientated and quite clearly Rock music.
Nic Olsen explains “Father Father”
“For me this track has a Nirvana-esque feel mixed with the Neil Young and Crazy Horse album “Ragged Glory.” It was a track I did not think would cut it at first, but somehow came together well in the studio.”
