NO #2 - What's Your Name

Facebook /

I was disappointed when NO disappeared from last months Great Escape line-up, no official reason was given but their European tour was seemingly put on hold for a few months, there's something to be excited for now though (well if live near London) as the Los Angeles group have announced that they will play three gigs here at the end of the Month / early July. They've also shared a new video for their track "What's Your Name", originally available on last years White Iris 7" via bandcamp (and on vinyl too)...

The lead track is a beautiful, anthemic ballad with dynamic instrumentation standing to the fore of Bradley Hanan Carter's drawling baritone, a creeping melody full of emotion and sublime plaintive mood sure to ignite intrigue to many people who've recently found themselves addicted to The National's Trouble Will Find Me.

The single is backed with the rousing call to arms "Eleven Eleven", more upbeat, energetic and passionate, it promises to be a big live favourite with driving percussion and fuzzy rhythms swirling around your brain bringing almost compulsive beat nodding (I think that's the technical term for it!) on my every listen - stunning I think the word is.
