NANCY shows himself in new video for ‘French Cinnamon’

The elusive Brighton artist plays a London headline show at The Islington tonight (17th April).

We’ve been following new Brighton-based artist NANCY with keen interest since he first emerged in a cloud of mystery a while back.

The mask began to slip when he played his debut show for us at New Colossus Festival in New York last month, and he finally shows himself in a new video for ‘French Cinnamon’, a track from debut EP ‘Mysterious Visions’.

“I’m coming out of the closet,” NANCY says of the new video. “I’ve been drip feeding my identity over the course of 6 months to try and protect my E.P ‘Mysterious Visions’ from the horror(s) of context and the corrosive effects of history. I’ve used tit-bits from old magazines to mask my face and haven’t really told anyone what I’ve been doing. That being said, it’s starting to feel right that I reveal myself and begin the process of weaving my own body into my art.

“This time I am wearing my own face as a mask. It is a prop to help me communicate. It is where my soul lives, where my thoughts are created and is the prison I will be trapped in it until I die. View this video to ‘French Cinnamon’ as the pre-drinks to my coming out party. Enjoy.”

NANCY is set to play his debut London headline show at The Islington tonight (17th April).
