Nick Mulvey is one of the twelve names to be picked out for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize 2014. His ‘First Mind’ debut isn’t his first experience of the gong, mind you (he’s previously been nominated under Portico Quartet), but in the grand scheme of things, he started from the bottom, now he’s here.
As a means of respecting this journey to the top, Mulvey visited the Radio 1 Live Lounge to cover Drake’s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’, “hot love and emotion” and all.
Dressing down the original into a plucked acoustic piece, he performed the piece as part of Even More Music Month for the Fearne Cotton show.
