NEVĀDA NEVADA - PAST LIFE
ON ROCKS IN YOUR HEAD RECORDS
Album Art by Emmy Mikelson, untitled, mixed-media.
NYC BAND'S DEBUT FULL-LENGTH
"I'm not sure what I was expecting but it really hits hard! Right out the gate."
- Dominic East, The War On Drugs - guitar tech and confidant
“The album is full of deliciously noisy piano-guitar soundscapes – with strong melodies and vivid lyrics”
- Eponymous Review
"...if I hadn’t known that this group was from NYC, I would have assuredly figured out that was the case anyway. There is a certain honesty and passion to their playing and singing that groups from the city have that are not found or heard elsewhere."
- Critical Blast
Rocks In Your Head Records and Nevāda Nevada are excited to announce today's release of Past Life the debut LP from this NYC band. Past Life is out digitally wherever music is streamed or sold, as well as on vinyl in the nation's best record stores and ONLINE. The band will celebrate with a NYC album release show at Berlin (NYC) on Sunday, July 30, as well as touring throughout the fall and beyond.
Nevāda Nevada songs are lush, loud, melodic piano-and-guitar landscapes nested within an awful lot of noise, penned by frontman Kathryn Musilek (Burn Disco Burn, Deathships) and shaped and arranged by the band: Andrew Gerhan (Our Lady of the Highway, Adam Arcuragi, The Animals), David Olson (The Poison Control Center, The Wheelers) and Alicia Berbenick. In addition, Isiah Gage plays cello that sometimes sounds like horses, and Anya Combs plays supremely skronky, no-wave saxophone.
Musilek’s lyrics are figurative and feminist, full of abrupt shapes and bright-siding about “the difference a day made a decade ago,” or the more weighted and upsetting fact that “we can leave”, but it’s not going to change much. The songs on Past Life are about time and activism, love and rage, and being stuck while still building something.
Nevāda Nevada’s signing to Rocks in Your Head is a natural fit; NN member/producer Andrew Gerhan recorded and mixed a number of Sonny and the Sunsets’ albums including Tomorrow is Alright which was called perhaps "the most iconic SF album" by the SF Examiner, and contains the beloved hit single Too Young to Burn.
