Nick Ward brought his enigmatic live show to Sydney's Oxford Art Factory, bringing his debut EP to life for two sold-out crowds. Supported by Jerome Blazé, whose latest single Colour Of The Water premiered on MILKY earlier this week, both acts treated audience members to mesmerising sets.
With scenes of his life projected behind him, Ward played through tracks off Everything I Wish I Told, a coming of age story expressed across six tracks. The body of work discusses sexuality and identity, and serves as a documentation of Ward's own life so far. With a strong lyrical focus on the concepts of breaking down traditional ideas of masculinity, sexuality and gender, as experienced by himself as a teenager navigating the current political landscape, the release is a step into Ward's world, immersing the listener within the young artists inner monologue.
Audience members lapped up the venues eased restrictions, with Ward prompting them to open the pit to create a 'death wall', whilst other fans got on each others shoulders.
