NERVS - Picture Disc 7" EP

There's a Siouxsie and the Banshees cover. You interested yet?

NERVS - Picture Disc 7" EP

When I listen to new bands, it isn't often I get floored by what I just heard. This is one such case though. Far as I can tell, this band is rather obscure, and this seems to be their only release, much to my sadness. In addition, these tracks were released on a comp of all things to make matters worse. Nonetheless, this band is fantastic, and I'm in love already.

Musically, we have some Japanese hardcore, but what makes this band shine are the vocals. Unlike normal hardcore bands with female vocals, this girl doesn't scream shout, growl, nothing. She sings in a... well, singing fashion. On paper you'd think it'd be awful but it works amazingly. But the real kicker here, is the closing track. Their cover of Christine by Siouxsie and the Banshees. Absolutely gorgeous, and speaking of gorgeous...

Vocalist is pretty gorgeous also I'd say.
