ROUGE EP 

coming summer 2024


This thing has been a really exciting discovery for me... it’s certainly post-punk, hints at new wave, and is really good at painting a picture, but causing the chaos in equal measures.”  -Jack Saunders, Future Artists on BBC Radio 1

 

FAST MONEY MUSIC is back with a second single from the forthcoming EP Rouge. Hot Melt Glue is set for an April 5th release, and is an angular joyride of a pop song, exploring themes of temptation, self-control, and self-will. It’s the exhaustive search for a spiritual adhesive; when you’re trying to put yourself back together, but you’re looking in all the wrong places.

FAST MONEY MUSIC headlines Paper Dress Vintage on April 10th for the release of Hot Melt Glue, with the rest of the Rouge EP slated for later this summer.


With an arpeggiated synth bass line and pounding rhythm that serves as its driving heartbeat and only anchor, the song quickly devolves into a chaotic mess of jagged guitars, bright synths and erratic saxophone (played by John Waugh of The 1975), grasping at straws in a last ditch attempt to regain control of itself.

 

The Rouge EP was recorded at Palace Garden Studios in London and produced by FAST MONEY MUSIC alongside Joe Lyons, and features George Daniel of The 1975 and Callum Brown of Ulrika Spacek.


FMM’s debut EP Strange Moments was released to critical acclaim in June 2023, with spins and accolades from Jack Saunders on BBC Radio1 Future Artists, Steve Lamacq on BBC6 Music, as well as Simone Butler of Primal Scream on Soho Radio. The EP garnered editorial support from Record of the Day and Buzzbands LA, as well as other various blogs and editorial playlists. Previous single, Polar Bear, featured on RadioX’s X-Posure with John Kennedy, Radio1’s Future Artists with Tara Kumar, as well as Shell Zenner’s Track of the Week on Amazing Radio UK.


After two DIY gigs in late 2022, FMM headlined London’s Shacklewell Arms, Sebright Arms and The Victoria in 2023.   Fast Money Music headlines Paper Dress Vintage on April 10th.

 

 

FAST MONEY MUSIC

 

Hailing from San Francisco, Nick Hinman took a winding path to end up across the pond in London, England. It all began one winter’s day in a closet-size Brooklyn apartment. Armed with just a tiny midi keyboard, and guitar, Nick started making demos for a new project, influenced by a melange of his favorites: The Jesus and Mary Chain, Alan Vega, New Order, Jonathan Richman, and Talking Heads.

After performing coast to coast in the US, including a support tour for Foster The People, singles produced Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83, The Kooks), and playing at notable festivals such as Austin City Limits, Nick set out for London to work on his first record under the moniker FAST MONEY MUSIC (an ode the second Suicide record). 

Shortly after arriving in the UK, "Stay at Home" orders were mandated and he was forced to quarantine. A light in the darkness of the global pandemic, Nick was able to remotely collaborate with Mikko Gordon (Arcade Fire, Gaz Coombes) and Sam Petts-Davies (Thom Yorke, Warpaint, The Smile) and finish his debut EP. The record also features drums by George Daniel (The 1975).

Fast Money Music has already garnered support from Future Artists with Jack Saunders on BBC Radio1, Steve Lamacq on BBC6 Music, and Charlie Ashcroft Amazing Radio UK on the first two singles, Probably Finally and Claws, with the rest of the EP set for release in 2023.

In addition to working on and composing his own music, Nick writes and produces for other artists and scores music from his studio based in Hackney, London.
