NOTS were one of the best bands I saw at The Great Escape – berating a half-full room of slightly hungover festival goers early in the afternoon with a short, pulsating set of brilliantly fierce and raw punk rock that somehow blended the Ramones with Television and Sonic Youth and then added a dash of Hawkwind.
Their second album will be with us via the Heavenly label in September and is titled Cosmetic. The first track from it is Entertain Me, which lead vocalist Natalie Hoffman describes thus, “Drawing influences from experimental no wave, postpunk, and psychedelic music, Entertain Me takes its cues from the edges of genres, where one begins to blend into another, and nothing is easily classified. The lyrics reflect the cyclical, distorted nature of the song, addressing different facets of the grotesque horror show going on in American politics.”
Sounds good to us in every way – stream it below.
