PREMIERE: Nervosas' Self-Titled LP Shows You What Dark Punk is All About

Dark punk will never die.

Nervosas is a punk band out of Ohio that plays a barrage of crazy jams that sound like a perfect middle ground between goth and post-punk. From the onset of the first track "Moral Panic," the listener is flung into a weather system of ultra fast riffing and drum hits, all the while both vocalists harmonize and scream about living in a moral panic. The song is absolutely furious in its delivery, but doesn't give up any ground in its melody or rhythm. From there the pace changes up a little on tracks like "Night Room" and "The Well" which inject pop sensibilities into the storm of a record. The record has all the elements you'd want on both sides of the post-punk coin. There's the restrained moments in songs like "Quarantine," that build up a mood and tempo, and then the explosive nature in choruses like "Parallels." What more could you want?
