Jimmy Hickmott has recorded a bright Summer album with a Spring in its step, indie pop with a love for melody and the percussive sound of anything from coconuts to a dustpan brush. This is the sound of distant childhood memories and sun soaked days out in the park.
"Bright, perky and tuneful - A tender foot stomping slice of late summertime folk-pop that’s literate soulfulness is redolent of the likes of The Housemartins" - GodIsInTheTV
"A ridiculous summer romp" - Bucket Full Of Nails
"that’s where Nice Try Sunshine’s genius lies: in its ability to exist on the edges and boundaries of things – either emotions or seasons or musical genres – and to do so self-consciously but without ever being too conceited or too clever." - The Third Ear - Thomas Blake (Folk Radio UK)
"Bouncy, percussive folk pop with a big chorus and just a hint of world weariness in the lyrics" - The Modern Folk
