White Wishes is the solo-project of Nikita Pavlov's conjuring of daydreams, cold Berlin winters and warmth of sincerity into simple pop songs. Having come from a small town near St. Petersburg in Russia, Nikita escaped to Berlin where he met Australian bass player Andrew Knox during the winter of 2010. They quickly recorded a group of songs before Andrew had to move back to Sydney, where he later joined the band "Made In Japan". These recordings ended up being the "Hold Your Hand" single that was released for free online.
In the same year, Nikita returned to Russia where he then completed his first EP titled "Today" and had the songs fine tuned with the help of a friend named Maxim Polivanov of the band Motorama.
The winter is just beginning and White Wishes is the perfect companion to bring an extra bit of light to the shortness of day.
White Wishes will release their international debut as part of Shelflife Record's "1000 Series" in Spring 2011, which will feature some new and re-worked older recordings.
