A time of fundamental crisis tends to create impressive art and right now there’s an incredible amount of exciting new bands that take elements of previous independent rock incarnations and adds a modern twist to it. Maybe the age of creating band hypes is over but NBHAP author Norman tried it anyway and invites all fellow old “indie heads” like him to jump on this bandwagon.
Every Friday music fans are faced with the same burning question: What to listen to from the sheer endless sea of new albums, EPs and other releases? Don't worry, the people of NBHAP are here to help you with that. Our very own release roundup gives you a quick overview on the music that matters the most this week.
This year has been a challenge for all of us and we were lucky enough to have such tremendous records on our side to comfort us in difficult times. From gentle melancholia, to raging fury - the albums of 2020 had a lot of stories to tell and these are the ones our staff enjoyed the most. If you haven't listened to all of them you now got a whole lockdown winter ahead of you to do that.
Ahead of the forthcoming release of their debut '925', we met up with Sorry's Asha Lorenz. The band's lead opened up on the random nature of songwriting, how each track on the album is rooted in another emotion and elaborated on the means of painting a picture with music. Well, we did not quite manage to match a colour to the individual songs, but it nevertheless brightened up our understanding of the act.
Ain't it wonderful to start your day with a fresh piece of music? A song you can experience for the very first time, free from any expectations. Every day the writers of NBHAP pick a new one for you, present them on our page and add the to our paylist. These have been our highlights from the past weeks.
