The Evil One
PUT THIS IN YOUR DEN if you like your punk rock diverse and layered. From pop punk to emo revival and shoegaze to harmonizing group vocals, this is a record pushing the boundaries of what to expect from a melodic punk album.
Available on glorious red wax, limited to 750 copies
Watford-born indie rock band Nervus are set to release their fourth album, The Evil One, via Get Better Records, and it feels different than any of their album releases have before. The circumstances less stable, the reactions less predictable, the future less certain. And Nervus feel free. "We've abandoned all preconceptions about what success might look like as a band. And kind of abandoned the will to be successful in any way at all," says frontwoman Em Foster. With a sound that injects vintage Americana and '70s power pop into their punk influences, the album rejects the band's previous identity-based songwriting to explore the power of interdependence, with community and the earth. It's their most self-assured and thought-provoking album yet, and it smashes through every limit Nervus had previously placed on themselves.
