Label: Think Like A Key Music

Format: CD

Catalogue Number: TLAK1157


Nick Frater’s 11th studio album, “Bivouac,” emerges as a sophisticated pop masterpiece in his prolific discography. Embarking on a thematic journey, it encapsulates the quest for solace in a woodland sanctuary amidst post‐industrial Britain. Drawing melodic echoes from Bacharach, Tillbrook, McCartney, and Rundgren, Frater’s songcraft resonates deeply, particularly with devotees of Ram and Wizard a True Star. Across 23 impressive tracks, “Bivouac” adeptly melds power‐pop, orchestral‐pop, and prog intricacies, serving as a testament to Frater’s creative dedication. Embracing an ambitious collaborative spirit, he unites with melodic‐rock luminaries including Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Beck/Jellyfish), Luke Smith (Ulysses), and Joe Kane (The Poppermost), seamlessly intertwining these talents with authentic Radiophonic tape effects, Mellotron textures, and Pink Floyd’s original Dark
Side of the Moon synthesizer.
