So, there’s this band I’ve gotten really into lately. They’re called Nadir and they’re from Queens, which is weird because I thought they were from wherever Off With Their Heads is from because their lead singer is in Off with Their Heads, but whatever. They’re really good, and of course, you should know I was gonna say that because I fucking love Off With Their Heads. I saw them (OWTH) at 1919 Hemphill with like two other people in the audience, and it was a straight-edge club, but nobody cared. It was a fun night.
I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on a press copy of Nadir’s debut album, Collecting Misery, and it’s easily my first favorite thing that’s come out this year. (That I know of!) And I’m absolutely thrilled to show it off to you! Well, the first song anyway, off their first album. So, unless you’re one of the ones in-the-know enough to have snagged the demo, then I proudly present Nadir with “Doomed From the Start”.
Collecting Misery is being self-released by Nadir, and drops Feb. 25. Stream “Doomed From the Start” below.
