Nick Weaver, Guitarist and Co-Founder of Deep Sea Arcade, Dies at 37

The band broke through in the late noughts with “Don’t Be Sorry” (via Ivy League Record), a super-catchy single which captured the Mersey sound and got traction on ABC’s Triple J station and the Corporation’s music video program, Rage.

“Don’t Be Sorry” and the singles “The Devil Won’t Take You” and “Lonely In Your Arms” enjoyed spins in the U.K. on BBC 1, BBC 6, and XFM and later appeared on the 2012 album Outlands, which was supported by Triple J as its feature album.

The group signed on for representation with Universal Music Publishing Australia through a joint venture with Michael Chugg’s Chugg Music, and in 2018 released a second and final album Blacklight, featuring a different lineup, a new sound and with production by Grammy, Emmy and ARIA Award-winning studio pro Eric J Dubowsky.

In a statement to Triple J’s sister station Double J, Weaver’s family said the artist was busy with several projects including recording a new album with The Tambourine Girls, an indie pop band led by ex-Deep Sea Arcade guitarist Simon Relf; a disco record with Salmon Brothers; as well as a solo record, “which his bandmates have pledged to finish and release soon. His creativity was only just blossoming, and he will be greatly missed.”
