We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of The Nectars’ new single “I Want It” (listen below), which follows the release of their thrashy debut “Heaven.” Both tracks are taken from their just announced debut album Sci-Fi Television, which is due out on May 25, 2018.
Jessica Kenny comments on the song:
“‘I Want It’ is 2 mins of scorching, garage rock emotion. As a band we always like to toy with power dynamics and thought a woman demanding sex would be jarring to chauvinist ideals. With that in mind we needed to write a song encapsulating the feeling of being stoned, late at night, post show, covered in sweat, eager to fulfill our own physical desires. The slogging pendulum of a riff was born out of Jon’s frustration with guitar-less pop music dominating what’s left of alternative radio. Following in the lo-fi footsteps of our idols Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees we assembled a track that cuts open your ear drum and drinks the blood as a midnight snack. Do you want it?”
Breaking out of the suburbs of New Jersey, DIY upstarts The Nectars – consisting of Jessica Kenny (vocals), Jon Paul (bass / vocals), Mike Montalbano (drums / vocals) and Michael Baron (guitar / vocals) – deliver an exciting and fresh approach to the New York post punk / pop scene and have launched full-throttle into 2018 with new music and lives shows. Certainly ones to watch out for this year.
Still under a year since inception, the band have already had early label interest but their cool, free-spirited nature sees them liking to do things their own way, from self-made videos to scouting studios for recording time.
They are also creating a hype on the NYC live scene following shows at iconic venues such as the Mercury Lounge, Meatlocker and BoonTunes. The band will be heading over to the UK this spring for a number of shows which will be announced soon.
