"Birds Of Tokyo w/ Timothy Nelson & The Infidels @ Metro City"

"But Timothy Nelson and the Infidels were here to kick this shindig into gear. Earning a name in the past year as one of the must-see Perth acts, this five-piece were clearly basking in the feeling that they had been ‘hand-picked’ by the Birds Of Tokyo crew. According to frontman Nelson, they had to “audition in their underwear” for the slot. Bringing a warm southern twang to the proceedings, WAMi award winning lead guitarist Luke Dux revelled in injecting his electric flourish to the lush vocal harmonies and acoustic strings of Nelson and Ellen Oosterbaan. A refreshing sense of honesty bled through in Run For Cover and Let Her Go." - X Press Magazine (Perth)

"Timothy Nelson & The Infidels – 'Nothing's In Tune' single"

Timothy Nelson is no stranger to writing award-winning songs, having taken out the WAMi Song of the Year award in both 2007 and 2009. So it should be no surprise that the Infidels' single Nothing's in Tune (from their forthcoming debut album) is in fact a well-crafted track.

Nothing's in Tune is about unrequited love, with Nelson's sincere vocals tugging on the heartstrings. We've all been there, so it's relatively easy to relate. The guitar sounds and harmonisation reflect the alt.country/folk style of the track.

Included on the single is a live version of Speak the Truth in Love. This appears to keep with the theme of unrequited love, and speaks of being so in love you want to tell everyone about it, even though it may not be reciprocated. Nelson has earnest down to a fine art, and it shows in his songs. I look forward to the release of their album. - Rave Review - Melbourne

"Timothy Nelson and The Infidels Tease with New Single"

I flipped when I heard Timothy Nelson and The Infidels debut single “Nothing’s in Tune,” and commented that if it was a sign of things to come, I couldn’t wait for that album to drop. The bad news is, I’m still waiting. The good news though is that the band have proven they’re no flash in the pan with the follow-up single “You Don’t Know What You’re Waiting For.” This is more music from the heart that instantly fits like a comfy pair of slippers. It’s not derivative, but there’s just something about it that’s so accessible. There’s such a maturity about it, I can barely believe that Timothy is just 20 years old! - Sounds Of Oz

"Timothy Nelson & the Infidels - Nothing’s In Tune (Single)"

Nothing’s In Tune is the latest single release from Perth based Timothy Nelson & The Infidels. Timothy is a really talented singer and has excellent accompaniment from The Infidels in this track.

Nothing’s In Tune has an upbeat tempo, catchy lyrics and element to create a great Australian acoustic rock song. Their style is very similar and comparable to Brisbane based Hungry Kids of Hungary. Timothy Nelson & The Infidels’ smooth melodies and uplifting guitars really create an excellent product and they should be commended on such a fine effort.

The single is also accompanied by a live version of their track Speak The Truth In Love which is a beautiful ballad, with tonic harmonies and string accompaniments that create a perfect atmosphere.

There are certainly great things to come from Timothy Nelson & The Infidels. There is definitely talent there, and they are gradually building a following in their hometown that will surely to expand to the east coast shortly. - TheDwarf.com


Next was what all tonight’s fuss was about: celebrating Timothy Nelson And The Infidels, who have in the last year risen on the must-see list of local bands.

With sweet vocal melodies, the band got people bopping around in their little cramped space for tune Run For Cover. Nelson’s voice displays so much honesty in every line sung to his audience, and that was not scarce in Annie Say Goodbye and Speak The Truth In Love - a couple of tunes taken on solo.

Welcoming back The Infidels, the set kept rolling with beautiful electric guitar woven through Nelson’s folk pop rock compositions. Paying tribute to the band’s guitarist Nelson revealed his ‘Oh my god it’s Luke Dux from The Floors!’ t-shirt.

Having established a following and appreciation around Perth, whatever is next for Nelson And The Infidels, let it be known Perth will be following.

Timothy Nelson & The Infidels have long been considered Perths folk & roll darlings, but in 2014 the band is hoping to solidify themselves as an entirely new beast altogether.

Formed in 2007, the band spent their formative years kicking around Perth, developing a local following helped by support slots for acts such as Birds Of Tokyo, Hoodoo Gurus, Eskimo Joe, Katie Noonan, Lior, The Audreys, & Clare Bowditch, with Nelsons Dylan-meets-Beatles songwriting style earning them WAM Song Of The Year awards for both Overcast Day (2007 Upper Secondary category) and Sleeping Alone (2009 Country). 

In June 2011, they released their widely anticipated debut album I Know This Now nationally through Green/MGM. Its singles Nothings In Tune and You Dont Know What Youre Waiting For received airplay on over 80 radio stations Australia wide, including Triple J, with street press and online music blogs across the country and in the U.S. singing the albums praises. Both of the aforementioned award winning songs appear on the album, as well as Speak The Truth In Love which in October 2011, took out two WAM Song Of The Year Awards (Grand Prize and in the Love category). Nelson took out 1st place in the Folk/Singer-Songwriter category in Unsigned Only (US) for Let Her Go and was also presented with an Outstanding Achievement In Songwriting Award for placing in the Top 5 of the Pop category in The Great American Song Contest (the only non-American winner in the category).

After taking the album on the road nationally in 2012, the band teamed up with producer Joel Quartermain (Eskimo Joe) to begin work on their second album. With the bands sound evolving beyond their folk & roll reputation and moving into a more pop direction, pre-production for the album spanned over the course of a year in between tours. Entering The Wastelands studio with Quartermain in early 2013, the first song to emerge was the 70s disco-inspired Mary Lou. The song very quickly became the bands most popular song to date, receiving significant airplay on Triple J, commercial and community radio Australia wide as well becoming a staple of the bands live shows. Despite the bands new foray into a more pop sound, they still managed to be awarded Best Folk Act at the 2013 WAMi Awards. Following this up with another single, the rock anthem-like live favorite Born In The 90s, and further touring across Australia, the band launched a successful crowd funding campaign through Pozible.com to help with the costs of completing their second album. Raising $10,000 in just 60 days from their loyal fan base they went back into the studio in January 2014 to finish the album. An Australian release is planned for August this year.
