On March 3, Nomik ”I Ain ‘ t Gonna Be A King” debut solo album is released. Nomik is the frontman of the great Greek psych rock band Sleepin Pillow and former frontman of Universal Trilogy. With “I Ain ‘ t Gonna Be A King” Nomik opens a new important chapter in his life and career with this solo creation, with ambitious dreams to follow in the near future.
The album inspiration has come from the artist’s personal experiences, real or imagined, where he embraces and observes the everyday labyrinth of the female body, mind and soul. Each piece of music on this album is its own unique story of a girl. Each girl or muse, has a story to tell and even more to leave to our imagination. Ten women. Ten female chapters. Characters that might be familiar to you, women you know, will meet or never will encounters. Characters we will only read about or hear about thought out the course of our life time.
Listening to the album some may recognise in some of the pieces a friend or a lover, a description of a stranger but also, probably, to see a reflection of yourself. Some could possibly dream of a lost or unrequited love, reminisce about a girl who passed through their lives, a love at first sight that still lives on..
The album refers to the human understanding of love and life itself. The artist expresses in his way how a woman loves and is loved, how according to her moods she can or cannot be accessible, how she sometimes can be a distant unreachable dream, that can easily be converted into a chimera, a blessing or a utopia. 10 real stories, expressed with all the literal elements of real and fictional aspects of the female personality and existence, which reflect thousands of hidden stories out there, and luckily there are countless types of women.
The result is simply intoxicating. Highly introspective, often melancholic, with moments of great inspiration and always melodic “I Ain ‘ t Gonna Be A King” is a composition of classic jazz, instrumental and electronic rock, retro Greek using sounds from the decades of the 50s, 60s and 70s as well as of today. Piano, violins, accordion, percussion, bass, guitar and many other aspects mixed beautifully to give a very special effect in this stunning arrangement. Some could say the album is a therapeutic experience that ends in a number of realisations, many life lessons and in the end the ever growing concept of the artist’s vision on innocence, mind, body, sexuality, ugliness.. Expressing the details of the summer, the mist, time, and life itself into a wonderful conceptive album with lyrics simple and sweet in this unique creation.
