Biography

Sheffield, England (1981 – present)

In The Nursery are a neo-classical electronic band, known for their cinematic sound. As a result, they have provided soundtracks to a variety of TV programmes and films, and are known for their rescoring of films.

Twin brothers Klive and Nigel Humberstone and Anthony Bennett formed this Sheffield, England-based band in 1981. The trio were originally associated with the UK’s industrial music scene, releasing the six-track When Cherished Dreams Come True in June 1983. The “Witness (To A Scream)” single and Sonority EP followed before the band moved to the Sweatbox label for the fearsome Temper EP.

The full-length Twins was recorded without the departed Bennett at Bradford’s Flexible Response Studio. The album adopted a more subtle approach by favouring theatrical atmospherics over industrial clatter. Multi-lingual vocalist Dolores Marguerite C made her debut on the Trinity EP adding French narration to “Elegy’. Dolores and military-styled percussionist Q were added to the line-up on the subsequent Stormhorse, the soundtrack to an imaginary film that provided the cinematic blueprint for all their future recordings.

The quartet’s final recording for Sweatbox, 1988’s Köda, completed the transition to a classical instrumental sound and utilised computer sequencing in the recording process for the first time. Following the collapse of Sweatbox the band moved to Third Mind Records to complete the delicate L’Esprit. The album was recorded with engineer Steve Harris who had contributed to Köda and would feature on all the band’s subsequent releases up to 1995.
