“Always on a different side of a lover’s carousel.”

Debuting earlier this week on the Consequence of Sound, Nick Valentini Collective’s visual for “Carousel” is a stunning five-minute animation from the critically acclaimed eight-piece, fusion musical collective out of Los Angeles, California.

 Blending indie rock, jazz and experimental psychedelic soul; the band has become known as “jazz fusion Radiohead.”

The collective consists of Nick Valentini (singer, keyboard), Erik Shibowski (bass), Hugo Shibowski (tenor sax), Nate Schwartz (guitar), Nicolo Scolieri (flute), Nick Velez (drums), Gabriel Wheaton (string orchestration) and Tyler Wennstrom (keyboard/percussion).

The group formed a little over six months ago and are building up to their debut album release, expected sometime late summer 2016.

 With Valentini’s deliberate melodies, strong hooks and unique musical arrangements in “Carousel,” his soulful vocals are layered over smooth piano riffs and experimental clashing guitars for a truly captivating sound.  “Mr. Mister” highlights the collective’s signature cinematic sound with lush strings.
According to Valenti:  “The upcoming album is inspired by the beauty of experimentation and the eagerness to explore endless possibilities through voice and music. There is opportunity to grow as people and individuals by simply trying new things.”
