Under the Radar: Nick Mulvey

British singer- songwriter Nick Mulvey was recently in Sweden to preform at Södra Teatern in Stockholm. Radar asked him some quick questions. 

Mulvey started off as a part of the band Portico Quartet, which he left in 2011 to pursue a solo career. Only one year later he released his debut EP The Trellis, following another one in 2013 named Fever to the Form. Mulvey’s single with the same title has been frequently played on Swedish radio along with another one of his songs Cucurucu. 2014 was a hectic and successful year for the London- based musician, with a Mercury Prize nomination and the release of his debut album First Mind. Radar asked him some quick questions.
