b. 中津 Kevin Nichols' gang of three sucks you into spinning confessionals via two-minute, high energy, sonic whirlwinds and then kicks you out as fast as you flew in. But if you're anything like me, you'll gladly jump back in to find that familiar, hot & steamy truth brewing in the storm cell lyricism and raw tone. Favorite track: Addict.

“Getting Hard” is the first EP of a trilogy documenting Kevin Nichols’ reluctant rise to adult responsibility. The title is both tongue-in-cheek (getting hard, get it?) and totally earnest: Life is getting hard, and by the sound of this EP, Nichol’s isn’t giving in - or growing up -  without a fight.
