Nudity hit us with their new sonic jam “White Hot Gold,” from their upcoming album Astronomicon – out April 7th on Iron Lung Records. Members of Nudity have been fueling the Olympia underground music scene for over two decades – including talent from bands like Broken Water, Hysterics, The Need, Sex/Vid plus many more. Their DIY hardcore roots shine through in the energy of their music and the grass roots intent with which they operate. These five lords and ladies dive deep into their vintage hard rock-inspired, Krautrock-infused compositions, leaving no one doubting the veracity of their musical commitment.
The 9 song platter, recorded with engineer/guru Tim Green (Sleater-Kinney, Melvins, The Fucking Champs), builds a shape-shifting pinnacle of sound, a pounding rhythmic core armored with hard riffs, cloaked in swaths of colorful synths and striped with soaring, searing leads and knife-sharp vocals – bringing tones and shades reminiscent of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal.
Astronomicon features driving uptempo beats, ringing choruses, and twin-guitar harmonies that segue into improvised jams invoking the MC5 at their Sun Ra-channeling best, cruise through talkbox-laden breakdowns and finish with pulse-revving big bang crescendos. Inspiration for the tracks came from places as lofty as long summers spent working fire lookouts on remote mountaintops, to lowly as a need for cathartic musical release after inter-band fights.
