Nix & the Nothings have not come Back From The Grave, although that wouldn’t be unlikely, based on their sound. It’s a relatively new garage rock band from Norway, featuring Nicolai Hervik Olsen, Andri Szarvas, Julia Flo Galaasen, Daniel Rognes and Torgrim Kvestad Nåmdal. They play raucous and rough rock ‘n’ roll, topped with a greasy sauce of punk and psych, dirty and dangerous. On their full-length debut album Here Goes Nothing, you’ll hear “a homage to garage rock from the 60s and beyond, filled with fuzz, emotions and attitude.” The ten songs here, with a ferocious organ and courageous vocals, are anything but nothing. The record radiates an overwhelming live energy, but in closing anthem Here Goes the musicians also appear to have a subtle side that is at least as convincing.
Here Goes Nothing is out now digitally, on CD and vinyl LP through Apollon Records.
