Nic Hamersly – A Rising Star in “Cold Wave” 

The genre of music in which Nic loves to perform goes by many different names. In the past it has been referred to as new wave, post-punk, and minimal synth (as in synthesizers). But perhaps the most encompassing label is that of “cold wave.” Gaining increasing popularity since the mid-2000s, cold wave combines analog synthesizers, drum machines, and minimalist music structures to create an unpolished, mechanical beat. Today, this music genre has quite the following. 

Though categorized as cold wave or min-synth, Nic Hamersly’s performances are not only refreshing and innovative but also mesmerizing to watch. As the sole member of his band Ortrotasce, Nic can be seen gracefully moving among instruments to create a techno-sound that moves the soul. It is this marriage of man and machine that is as much intriguing visually as it is sensually. It’s of little wonder why the demand for his performances is gaining momentum. 


Why Cold Wave and Nic Hamersly Epitomizes Creativity

Like many genres of music, cold wave evolved from an array of social, political, and technological changes. The movement initially started in Belgium and France in the late 1970s as cheap, portable synthesizers became increasingly accessible to post-punkers. But at the same time, cold wave has been embraced because of global developments as well. Its “cold” icy and mechanical feel aligns with a world that has become less feeling, more disconnected, and highly futuristic. Its clear why its style resonates with so many today. 

Cold wave music, as well as Nic Hamersly, also appreciate the minimalistic nature of the sound. Its ability to get down to the basics of melodic sounds helps strip away many of the complexities and “noise” found in other music genres. In fact, this same simple, creative approach to art can be seen in Nic’s photography and other artistic creations. A skateboarder at heart, Nic taps into this raw, basic, inner sense of beauty in all of his artistic pursuits. And this can also be appreciated in the designs he creates with clients at Big Frog Custom T-shirts.
