"Tell Me That Song"

"Nick Hilden, vocalist and bassist of Portland psychedelic trio Objects in Space, delves into the perks of living in a crack neighborhood, a man who had his lips and ears cut off but still finds joy in his life, and how to best pull off a wig and tiara." - Seattle Weekly


Still working on that hot first release.



Objects In Space began in the early years of the new millennium in a little flowerbox of a town in north-west Washington. Steeped in boredom, finding their only solace in Eric's garage, the boys stayed up late into each night drinking outlandish quantities of Bacardi 151 and Tanqueray whilst singing along to an eclectic variety of music—Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs, Iggy and the Stooges, the Stones, the Misfits (of course), and on more than one occasion Madonna’s Borderline. In a direct about face from their punk-rock upbringing, Nick and Aaron would eventually move on to that strange hippy college in Olympia, where they experimented in a variety of realities.

Then came further fragmentation. Aaron decided to blend his love of Art with that of Math and Science and left Olympia to pursue, and eventually earn, a degree in electronic engineering. Nick stayed in Olympia for a time then moved on restlessly for several years. Wine and women and books and riots in Paris. Aimlessness in Spain. A botched attempt at settling in San Francisco. Living in a tent in the middle of nowhere in eastern Washington. For a while, Portland. Back to the tent. All the while Eric lay dormant, furthering his knowledge in the dying art of fahrvergnügen, honing his brooding skills, and collecting a bizarre assortment of possessions that most people would have cast off years before. After seven years the hiatus came to a close. He packed up his burl and abandoned the flowerbox for the blooming city of Portland Oregon, where Nick and Aaron had recently resettled. They found a house with a basement and here we are. In the present.

Over the course of 2011, Objects In Space played nearly 150 live performances.
