We're Nuclear Bubble Wrap, a psychedelic/indie rock band from Nashville, TN. Writing music is our passion and it encourages us even more when it strikes a chord with other people. We have been together since 2004 and have grown a lot as musicians, producers, and as friends over the years. At first, we barely knew how to play our instruments, let alone arrange a song. Things got more complicated when our bandmate Brendan moved across the country. We had to evolve and think of new ways to involve him in our music. We began to “Frankenstein” songs together over the internet and it took years of hard work to not only learn the best methods of collaborating together, but also to hone our musical skills. Nowadays Brendan sends his tracks from overseas in England. Kyle and Jace work on their own songs in Nashville as well as chipping in on ideas arriving from the other side of the world.
We are currently working on recording our second studio album, Psycho Delicacy. We're very proud of the work we've done for it. We've finished writing it and now it’s time to get the bad boy recorded. This is where y’all come in. We need your help to get this album recorded, mastered, and manufactured.
Check out some of our songs below and if they seem like something you can get behind, don’t hesitate to give us some feedback or criticism. And if you’re ready to jump in headfirst, we’d really appreciate your donation!
Nuclear Bubble Wrap is:
- Jace McLain - vocals, keyboard, guitar, accordion, bass, drums, kazoo
- Kyle Thorne - vocals, guitar, bass, keyboard, distorted triangle
- Brendan Sheairs - guitar, bass, keyboard, electric harmonica
- Eric Zhu - drums and cowbells
With your support we will be able to do three things:
1. Finish tracking and mixing all of our songs at the studio
2. Have our album professionally mastered
3. Have our album created into CDs.

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk we face is not being able to finish mixing our album in the time frame we have estimated (40 hours). We have worked in the studio before and we generally know how long it takes for us to get things finished, so we do not anticipate this being a problem.
If the project is successful, backers will receive a monthly update on our album's progress in the studio.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
