The Vines’ Craig Nicholls reveals first track from new White Shadows project – listen

The project is a collaboration with Empire Of The Sun's Nick Littlemore

The Vines‘ Craig Nicholls has revealed the first track from his new project, White Shadows.

The Australian musician teamed up with Empire Of The Sun and Pnau member Nick Littlemore after writing songs that didn’t fit with his main band’s grunge aesthetic.

After meeting, the pair recorded ‘Give Up Give Out Give In’, which is the first track to be revealed from White Shadows. You can listen to the track below now.


The track was co-produced by Littlemore and his younger brother Sam, who is associated with Australian bands including Peking Duk and Parachute Youth. ‘Give Up Give Out Give In’ was originally recorded by The Vines as a B-side to the 2006 single, ‘Don’t Listen To The Radio’.

Last year, The Vines returned with their sixth album, a double album ‘Wicked Nature’ which featured 22 tracks and was produced by Nicholls. The singer and guitarist was joined by two new band members in drummer Lachlan West and bassist Tim John. White Shadows is the first project Nicholls has undertaken outside of The Vines.
