N.Y.C.K’s new Video is ‘Threes’

N.Y.C.K. have a video for ‘Threes’ with St. South from the new album ‘Wild Streak’.

Nick Acquroff wrote ‘Threes’ while driving up the east coast of Australia.

In a statement he says, “We were going and staying at shitty roadside motels and swimming in the water and going to bowls clubs and drinking beers and playing the pokies. I’d been in a funk. My world was dashed and I was feeling sorry for myself. My brothers had worked in our family business and were doing so well for themselves.

They were strong and they were confident, and they were going places. I had failed. But it was this really amazing thing – over the course of two weeks we became kids again. We didn’t have any deep conversations, we didn’t talk much, but it was unbelievably cathartic. Their confidence rubbed off on me. The way they took responsibility for things and saw life pragmatically. And that’s what I love about brothers, and the relationships I have with boys. We don’t talk much about anything, we don’t have these deep conversations about love and life. We slip into mundane existence and sit in the present together. Playing games like we did when we were boys.”

The conversation at the opening of the song was recorded at Merimbula Surf Club on Nick’s phone.

“This old bloke sat us down and was just talking about the greyhounds and horses,” he says, “I find Australiana very comforting.”

‘Wild Streak’ was launched in Melbourne at the Russian Tea House in Fitzroy last Friday (18 October).
