NEW ARTIST OF THE DAY: NØMADS
Brooklyn duo bring the noise...
SUBBA-CULTCHA.COM SAYS: “Two-pieces are all the rage at present, the likes of Drenge, Royal Blood and Vulkano excelling in their respective worlds. NØMADS join the party with debut album ‘Free My Animal’, squeezing inhuman quantities of noise from their minimal bass/drums line-up. Sludgy grooves and hazy vocals are the order of the day here, drummer Garth Macaleavey (Philip Glass Ensemble, Inlets) laying down a brilliantly solid rhythmic foundation. It’s scuzzy rather than lo-fi, with a hint of early post-hardcore: tracks like ‘In The Mend’ possessed of an impressive physicality. Crank up the speakers and check it out below... and keep your eyes peeled for further coverage."
NØMADS will be releasing their debut album
Free My Animal on April 8 via Mecca Lecca. Born and incubated in a tiny room in Brooklyn, NØMADS leans towards the razor-efficient songwriting forms of 90’s bands like Nirvana, Fugazi, and Girls Against Boys, while updating the style and stripping the approach to its essential foundations of lyricism and sonic intensity. NØMADS is a primal sound that capitalizes on conspicuous juxtapositions- minimal instrumentation against maximum sound; aggression against beauty; soft melody versus an aggression of expression.
Free My Animal, the project’s first full-length effort, is an album about liberation, belief, and being alive, incorporating elements of more contemporary rock outfits like Death From Above 1979 and Queens of the Stone Age.
