New band of the day – NÃ¼ Sensae
They made #35 in the LTW 2012 Albums Of The Year, and 2013 looks set to be the year people sit up and take notice.
The video, for the track “Spit Gifting,” is a claustrophobic affair, with lots of close-ups of both the band members’ individual faces and the band together, bashing away, creating a cacophonous glorious noise thatâs part punk, park grunge, even math rock gets a nod.
Initially a two piece consisting of Andrea Lukic (Vocals/Bass) and Daniel Pitout (Drums) though they have recently expanded by adding second guitarist Brody McKnight which has had the effect of allowing Andrea to focus more upon her vocals, the result being you actually get to hear her sing â albeit in a gravelly roar; the result being likened to a blend of Babes In Toyland and Sonic Youth.
They have released a smattering of releases, from split cassette only editions, 7â singles, the previous ‘TV, Death and The Devil’ album all of which have long since sold out – NÃ¼ Sensae cram more variation into their three minute bursts than some other groups manage on a whole album; with a sound comprised of angular chords, pummeling drums, and from Andrea shrill full-throated roars as she summons demons from the darkest sections of her psyche.
The band recently completed an autumn tour of Canada and the USA, plans are made to bring them to Europe and the UK.
