The Nursery is a vibrant 4-piece band from Toronto, Canada who weave hazy, neon-drenched atmospheres into irresistibly ear-worm worthy songs, both hypnotic and euphoric. Lyrically spinning conversational quips that tap into the human condition, exploring life's contradictions while being pulled between pure joy and sheer dread.
Founders Alex Pulec (guitar/voice) and Victor Ess (bass/keys), have collaborated together extensively over the last decade under different monikers after meeting at a swap meet. Influenced by early electro, punk and UK glam rock records, Alex and Victor began writing songs under The Nursery in 2014 with the inclusion of a synth and keyboard player Jared Roth, and drummer Josh English. "Freak Pop", "Post-Grunge" and "New New Wave" are all words that have been used to describe the band's hard-to-define sound.
The Nursery took home Best Indie Band (2015) and Best Music Video (2016) at the Toronto Independent Music Awards for a self-produced video for their song "Digital Ashes". The song also appears in Season 1 of the CBC show Schitt's Creek. The Converse Shoe Company sponsored the band to record new music which will be included on their debut LP, Life After Wartime. Their new single "Everybody's Famous" from the forthcoming album sees the band setting the stage for a refreshing dose of intoxicating pop and rock & roll adventurism.
