I don’t know much about NIXIE IN THE POND. The folk duo is made up of Lucy Staniland, and Nikola McMurtry, who are both on Twitter, though McMurtry doesn’t tweet much. Their Facebook Page biography goes this way:
“Started out as friends who just happened to write our own material, then one night we began jamming together and then BOOM. We now out stay our welcome in each others pockets all the time. – We love all kinds of music, but we’ve a particular crush on folk, so we seem to be heading down the ‘folky’ path with a bit of our own stamp.”
I had to listen to them a couple of times before I decided they were good, but they are, and I suspect they’ll be around a while.
Nixie in the Pond is a Germanic Folk tale popularized by the Brothers Grimm. A nixie is a water spirit.
