Nurses - Apple's Acres (2009)
Band members Aaron Chapman and John Bowers originally hail from Idaho Falls, ID. After heading out west to Southern California with former band members, and even spending a short time in Chicago, the two longtime friends have since settled in Portland, OR in 2008.
Nurses released Hangin’ Nothin’ But Our Hands Down with help from Sargent House in March 2007. After the loss of some former band members, Chapman and Bowers began songwriting and recording as a duo. Much of these recordings make up their second full length release Apple’s Acre, to be released in spring 2009. The second album shows a radical departure from older styles of songwriting, and dives more into a world of dreamy, experimental pop. James Mitchell (of Idioflux) has since joined the group on percussion in early 2008.
Nurses recently played some short tours with the likes of Born Ruffians , Maps & Atlases.
