"Among the town's best songwriters"
Over the past five years, Nicholas Mallis’ brand of weirdo pop and absurdist, over the top performances have been garnering him praise in Athens and beyond. He has shared bills with indie pop greats like Dan Deacon and Kishi Bashi and even played as a side man in the solo efforts of Athens legends Cindi Wilson and Fred Schneider (The B-52’s). In 2019, Nicholas released Artificial Irrelevance, a collection of glam pop songs that Flagpole Magazine referred to as “timeless.” After spending a year promoting and touring A.I., Nicholas has quickly churned out another album and he is gearing up to tour the east coast again this spring. The Final Station was recorded at Nicholas’ home studio in Athens and mastered at The Glow by engineer/producer Jesse Mangum (Elf Power, Black Kids, Deep State). The new album will be out on spring 2020 via the Athens record label, Laser Brains.
