Golden Suits

Golden Suits is Fred Nicolaus from the band Department of Eagles. His experience co-writing songs for that group, combined with a strange year which included a rat-infested apartment, a painful breakup, an emotional trip to Germany, and other challenges inspired Nicolaus to write a solo album. With a nod to classic pop and the aid of contributions from members of Grizzly Bear, Ava Luna, and Mason Jar Music, Golden Suits’ music combines nostalgia, sentimentality, obscure literary references, and personal confessions.

Featured song: “Swimming In ‘99”

Golden Suits’ self titled debut album is available now from Yep Roc.
