“Bolshy, in yer face punk” Earmilk
“Anthemic, alternative rock . . . contrasted by ironic lyrics” Yuck Magazine
“…off-kilter post-punk bangers” Louder Than War
Mysterious London-based outfit Nrvs return with another thunderous single, I Like You – a track about how basic humans can be.
As the anonymous group puts it, “Humans can be pretty basic. Love songs, poems about suicide, Tinder … it all boils down to one thing: I like you. Do you like me? It’s the ultimate vulnerability”. I Like You is the first single from Nrvs’s upcoming EP of the same name due for release this Autumn.
Previous Nrvs singles Bad Taste, Revolution Traffic and See Yer Hate To Be Yer have enjoyed spins on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show and BBC Introducing Yorkshire (See Yer was their Record of the Week). Along with frequent visual collaborator Mike Raymond (HMLTD), who has created several retina-scorching videos for the group, Nrvs are shaping “a nightmare-normal vision of the near future, that you can dance to”.
