Nerves – Nerves (Nightmother Inc. – 2013)
Most bands need years to refine their craft and put out something truly their own. Most bands prematurely end before this evolution ever takes place. But every now and then a band comes hurtling into existence with a sonic signature unique to themselves, then just as quickly disappears back into the void. Nerves were one of those. The musical themes on this album just feel so fully realised and cohesive from beginning to end. Dissonant, progressive and wild. It’s a shame this they never got the chance to evolve further. They were a spark in the darkness.
