With the twentieth birthday of Is This It just starting to peak above the horizon, the time is nigh for a resurgent interest in transatlantic art-rock. Step forward Bad Nerves, a group who look and sound as if they were cryogenically frozen around the time of the release of The Walkmen’s ‘The Rat’. Or maybe it was when The Paddingtons went top 40. Anyway, ‘Can’t Be Mine’ is perfectly acceptable music.
Produced by the geezer (Liam Howe) who did the recent FKA Twigs killer and some Tom Vek stuff, All These Years is the EP follow up to Shivum Sharma’s debut album Follow. It’s some good old angsty electro indie pop in the vein of vomitingly dull London Grammar.
Limited to 300 10” vinyl.
