The Nix are a young five piece Indie Rock band from Stockport who are looking to break onto the music scene in 2016. Drawing influences from a variety of bands from all decades from The Beatles to The Strokes, their sound has been described as raw vocals accompanied by crisp tri-guitar melodies and a tight rhythmic backbone. Their debut ‘Luna EP’ was released on February 19th and the band look sure to keep pushing the momentum forward. With a gigging reputation around Stockport and Manchester, The Nix’s music is definitely something worth seeing for all music listeners.
