Vague-à-bonde is the solo project of Nicole Brenny. Starting from scratch at the age of 22, Nicole taught herself four different recording platforms in a matter of months. Her first album Involution/Evolution was recorded while Nicole was traveling as a true vagabond- sleeping in basements, houses and couch-surfing alone across North America. She also spent numerous hours in isolation in a cabin up North recording and writing songs for her first album. Lucid dreaming and astral traveling were also integral practices during the writing process.
She currently has settled in Minneapolis, MN. As of now she does all of the work on her own from writing, playing the instruments, singing, arranging and recording. She is influenced not only by K-Pop and top 40 American pop, but also Fleetwood Mac. She is working on her second release, co-producing with Chris Heidman (producer of Howler’s “America Give Up” -Rough Trade 2012). “Evolved” represents a departure from her first album. It is the first single on her second release which is due out this fall. “Evolved” is one of many pop songs on the new record that showcase the sonic feeling of what came from so much time alone recording in the woods and exploring the American and Canadian landscape from the driver’s seat.
