Last October we introduced the dark sparse beats of Nedry (here), a trio that make a sound that we described as the ‘soundtrack of modern day dreams and nightmares.’ Since then Nedry have increased their profile with dates in Japan, a live session with Huw Stephens on BBC Radio One and very recently have been featured as New Band of the Day on the Guardian website. Now the good news is that Nedry are about to re-release their album Condors in a physical format through Monotreme Records on February 8th. The band are also due to play a full UK tour supporting new label mates 65daysofstatic in May and we very much hope to bring you a review of one of those shows.
Prior to all of this Nedry have issued a new video for album track A42. It’s a primitive midnight seduction where jittering hop-scotch beats, dirty head-music bass sounds and Ayu’s astral Bjork-like vocal mesh together to create a beautiful yet macabre modernism. The video was created by Juzz Media in an abandoned Polish warehouse late last year and suits the bands innovative sound perfectly. Right now there seems to be a rising of a new vanguard of artists who are taking the evil beats / dubstep / down-tempo template but manipulating and warping it into their own sonic shape. The XX , Esben and The Witch and Worried About Satan are just three other acts who are developing this progression with success, and Nedry are certainly another to add to this exciting list. Here is A42 by Nedry.
