Rick Shrimp Returns With 'Richard II' EP

Did somebody say fresh Shrimp? Rick Shrimp that is — the Tāmaki-based, Serbian musical entertainer who boogied his way into our hearts with July's St Petersburg / Ultraviolet EP. Shrimp is back, bringing a whole lot of pizzazz to your Friday lunchtime and beyond with his new Richard II EP. Reflective opener 'You Never Say Arrivederci' feels like a mid-morning gaze out of an upstairs apartment window at the sparkling waters of Auckland City's Hauraki Gulf, second number 'Remembrance' brings the office chair funk while stirring dreamy memories of yesteryear, while frisky closer 'So Long Baby' settles into a killer groove that never outstays its welcome over nearly nine minutes. Playing a special free livestream event at the Flying Out store this Saturday from 2pm NZST (tune in here), the liner notes for Shrimp's Richard II tell an evocative tale...

"I finished my Martini, and hailed down a cab. as I shuffled into the back seat, i let out lengthy sigh, I knew it would never work between us we didn't have a chance, who was i kidding? her a Marine Biologist and me a... some kinda wind swept drifter from the docks, So Long Baby xo"

'Richard II' is out now on major streaming services.
