Album Notes
Nice Beaver was founded in 1997, when members of local bands Scotty! and For Cryin' Out Loud decided to work together. The group stems from Papendrecht, a small town near Rotterdam.

The name Nice Beaver refers to a joke from the movie Naked Gun, where a game is played with perceptions and expectations. Sometimes things are not what you perceive them to be, and sometimes what you see is what you get. A similar game with reality and our expectations can be heard in the music of Nice Beaver. Deceptively simple rhythms turn out to contradict the melody, while the most complex patterns produce groovy tunes. A musical genre is also a straitjacket, and Nice Beaver doesn't like being labelled, but with one style of music the band feels a kinship: progressive rock. Nice Beaver combine prog with influences from heavy metal and the new wave of the eighties to make their own unique style. The result is heavy, complex and yet melodic and dynamic progressive rock. The lyrics play an inportant role. The songs tell no stories, but the words and the music together create an atmosphere or express a feeling.
Melancholia, loss and the lack of communication, but also rebellion, optimism and love are recurring themes.

Nice Beaver is not a quiet band, live shows produce quit a racket. However, the melody reigns supreme thanks to musical craftsmanship and the subtle balance between rhythm-instruments and guitar and synthesizers. A Nice Beaver show is an energetic experience, the joy and enthusiasm for making music explode from the stage.
