Nel Unlit were born out of the Spooker Rekkids attic in the old ladies room of the Westgarth Social Club in Middlesbrough. They have written a concept album, “Wake for the Dreaming” based on the graphic novel "World's End" by Neil Gaiman. It is a celebration of storytelling and it’s power to soothe and inspire in times of crisis. It will be released in 2019. They released their debut single “True Things” in August 2017 and followed it with Unhung in February 2018 to praise and comparisons with Richard Dawson, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Alt-j, Elbow and Jarvis Cocker. New single Fireflies is released on 5th October 2018.
