"...think Alabama Shakes with a Scottish soul." - The List


"Pulse-racing Americana..." - Tenement TV


"...a perfect blend of bass, shakers, and twangy-toned guitars..." - Impose Magazine



Glaswegian quintet The Nickajack Men have returned with their captivating new single Can’t Take It Anymore, out now via NJM Recordings and is available to stream on Spotify.

The single premiered on Tenement TV and can now be streamed on The Nickajack Men Soundcloud page.



A reflective yet uptempo track, Can’t Take It Anymore flows with delicate, folk-inspired melodies that soon build to a raw, emotion-strewn climax. Filled with the gritty, soulful vocals of frontman Lewis White, it’s an anthemic slice of Americana- tinged alt-rock. Of the track, the band explain: “It’s a song about struggling to deal with a lot of issues going on. Being stuck feeling like you have no real direction in what you’re actually doing day to day. It’s good to have an outlet like music where we can put our depressing thoughts across in a weird semi-happy sounding song.”

Having formed in 2014, the quartet have been building their name on the Scottish live circuit for the past few years. A sold out show at King Tuts was followed by the ‘Best Newcomers’ 2015, ’Best Single’ and ‘Best Alternative/Indie Band’ 2016 at the Alternative Music in Falkirk Awards. They have also received support from the likes of Team Rock, Songwriting Magazine and Americana UK and are looking forward to supporting The View on their upcoming tour.

Can’t Take It Anymore, the new single from The Nickajack Men, is out now via NJM Recordings and is available to stream on Spotify.

The Nickajack Men share new video for ‘Running’!

Falkirk-based four piece The Nickajack Men have revealed the video for their new single Running, out now via NJM Records. The single is taken from their debut EP Wasting Away and is available to stream on Spotify and buy on iTunes.

The video premiered on The List and is also available to watch via The Nickajack Men's YouTube channel now.



The single originally premiered on Impose Magazine and is also available to stream via The Nickajack Men's Soundcloud page now.


The theme of the EP explores the difficulties and frustrations experienced by aspiring young musicians as they try to break free from the environment they have grown up in, preparing to take their first steps into a larger, daunting world. From the first note of the opening track Running, the momentum builds slowly with lead singer Lewis White’s country-tinged vocal style taking centre stage. Skilfully supported by a dynamic band who’s instrumentation is expertly delivered, The Nickajack Men’s ability to write emotive, heartfelt music comes to the fore; producing a captivating, anthemic sound in the spirit of contemporary stalwarts such as Band of Horses.

Each song offers something different from the last, without losing the band’s americana and indie-rock roots, as the listener works their way through an eclectic mix of sounds and rich textures. ‘Marilyn’ is instantly catchy; a combination of 90’s style brit pop fused with traditional country flavours, while ‘Erb’ effectively incorporates elements of gospel and blues. Closing track ‘When The Winter Comes’ showcases the full repertoire of a band in their element culminating in a climactic, classic rock outro that would do Bruce Springsteen proud.

Having formed in 2014, the quartet have been building their name on the Scottish live circuit for the past few years. A sold out show at King Tuts was followed by the ‘Best Newcomers’ 2015, ’Best Single’ and ‘Best Alternative/Indie Band’ 2016 at the Alternative Music in Falkirk Awards. They have also received support from the likes of Gigslutz and Amazing Radio.

With the release of their debut Wasting Away, The Nickajack Men want introduce the rest of the world to their undeniable energy and authentic approach to alt-country rock.

Wasting Away is out now via NJM Records and available to stream on Spotify and buy on iTunes now.
