New York City musician Nimo Kally has released his newest EP record, titled, “Espresso River.” The record includes three original tracks for a total of 11 minutes' playing time. It is the debut official release from Kally as a solo artist, though he has been performing rock music as a bassist, vocalist, and singer-songwriter for several years. Though “Espresso River” is only an EP constructed from three songs (essentially a single release with two B-side tracks) the little record is skillful, heartfelt, tasteful, stylish, and extremely well-written. It is also extremely affordable, so there's no risk in meeting Nimo Kally as he is introduced to the world for the first time.
Kally's singing style bares attributes reminiscent of Thom Yorke's understated, crackling mode of crooning, although neither too derivative nor too similar. The rhythms to which Kally plays his songs can also be soft and jazzy, also not unlike Radiohead (see Track 3 of Kally's EP, “Way Up in the Air”).
His overall feel, however, emanates the shadowy charm of Bowie, and the gentle darkness of The Cure's Robert Smith. His tones maintain a fluid coolness, too, and his tempos keep a steady, laid-back groove that invokes the tidal, tick-tock flows of Pink Floyd. This is all in the way of describing what is best heard firsthand, however. Kally has a sound that is all his own.
This individual sound comes from Nimo Kally's 15 years (and counting) in the music industry, fulfilling a fairly wide variety of roles. Since his time as a teenaged rocker, Kally has been a composer and producer, as well as a radio DJ at two of Israel's most reputable radio stations, Tel Aviv Radio, 102 FM, and Kol Hacampus, 106 FM. Since moving to NYC in 2004, he has worked with some of the industry's most brilliant minds, including the Top Billboard producer and engineer, Lior Magal, of Sony, BMG, and Geffen Records.
This debut EP, “Espresso River,” is composed entirely of Kally originals, produced by Kally himself with Zak Soulam (PRIZM Music – Suzanne Vega, Babyface). Mastering was done by Brian Lucey (The Black Keys, California Guitar Trio).
“Espresso River” by Nimo Kally is available online worldwide beginning spring of 2013.
