The Nursery


Started by singer-songwriter/video artist Alex Pulec, The Nursery is an alternative rock trio with songs comment on the intense emotions of youth, contrasting themes of fear, rebellion, obsession, desire and alienation. After bursting onto the scene with their tongue-in-cheek breakout single “Everybody’s Famous”, The Nursery has earned song rotation and interviews on mainstream and independent radio stations in Canada, The United States and Mexico. Upon releasing their debut album Life After Wartime, the Nursery quickly became one of most exciting independent bands in Canada. Pulec’s songwriting effortlessly mixes the haunting intensity of The Cure, the bold sensuality of Julian Casablancas and the razor sharp classic pop song-craft of The 1975. The Nursery’s signature production style mixes post-punk intensity, psychedelic landscapes and larger than life melodies. Creating a sense of atmospheric eeriness, while feeling comfortably warm and familiar. The dynamic mix of sweet and sour subject matter and sounds are the core of their identity and charm.

2020 sees The Nursery teaming up with Michael Fong (Electric Youth, Wintersleep) and Nick Boyd (Dizzy, Hollerado, Royal Mountain) to produce their new album, Candy + Gloom. Their sophomore release is poised to generate significant momentum cementing the next chapter The Nursery’s exciting story.
