Biography

Nina May met in a QUT music room @ Kelvin Grove in Brisbane. In a classroom full of people who preferred not to wear shoes and flicked their dread locked beards up at anything but folk, they quickly formed a bond.
This is where the songwriting partnership between progressive rock fan Simon Budge-Bicknell and major melody and pop fan Erinn Swan, began. It is the clash between their influences that's put Nina May on the map.
"The point at which these two clash - is where it gets exciting - and where the songs come to fruition. I don't know any other band that can write like these two.." Matthew Jeffries Smile Or Die Music.

The band released their debut EP "Make Love To Your Stereo" in June 2006, and have toured it hard up and down the East Coast of Australia. The band have sold over 1000 copies. Pretty impressive for an unsigned, self-managed act.

Nina May have just recorded their debut single "Crazy/Insane" with Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Human Nature, The Butterfly Effect).

The band are currently working on their next release and look forward to taking it on tour through 2008.

Lyrics

Crazy/Insane

Written By: Erinn Swan

Spent the night dodging bullets from my own gun.
If only I'd been shot down I'd be safe and sound no longer on the run.
Not caught but red-handed not quite understanding me.
Not caught but red-handed from waging this war on me.

I'm going crazy/insane
And I've got no one to blame
My heart's not tied to my brain
But I'm all tied up in shame
I'm going crazy/insane
ooh ooh
I'm going crazy/insane
oohh
And you've got nothing to say.

If I can keep it together I'll be ok
Cause I'm out of my trench
And this is intense..
I made a run for it man.

Not caught but red-handed from waging this war on me.

I'm going crazy/insane
And I've got no one to blame
My heart's not tied to my brain
But I'm all tied up in shame
I'm going crazy/insane
ooh ooh
I'm going crazy/insane
oohh
And I've got no one to blame
Oooh
And you've got nothing to say

And it is draining me
And it's all plain to see
And it is draining me
And it's all plain to see

I'm going crazy/insane
And I've got no one to blame
My heart's not tied to my brain
But I'm all tied up in shame
I'm going crazy/insane
ooh ooh
I'm going crazy/insane
oohh
And I've got no one to blame
Oooh
And you've got nothing to say
