The Nectars Keep On Running

New Jersey upstarts The Nectars, have released their new single ‘We Will Run’. The track is a euphoric, indie anthem, poised to become a summer soundtrack for dreamers everywhere and ignite festival stages in the UK next month. Band leader Jessica Kenny explained; “'We Will Run' is a track that’s truly close to our hearts. The song talks about having the desire to leave everything behind and RUN... no looking back. I think that all of us here in The Nectars are dreamers, willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill our hearts desires”.

This is just the third track to be released by the US quartet, who have mastered an exciting sound, harking back to the New York punk / pop scene of the late ‘70s but filtered through the modern sensibility of tech-savvy millennial creatives, with influences ranging from the likes of Blondie, The Ramones and Television to ‘90s era No Doubt and Wolf Alice.

‘We Will Run’ follows the singles ‘Heaven’ and ‘I Want It’, which all feature on the band’s debut album, Sci-Fi Television, which is due to land on the May 25. It was recorded at Barbershop studios in New Jersey and Studio G in Brooklyn, and is a nine-song collection of short, sharp bangers, each with their own individual sound delving into art-rock debauchery.

Jessica says, "Sci-fi Television is our band aid for a deep wound. It holds back the monsters inside each of us. Beneath it, our worries and dreams cycle wildly. This is the story of our twenties, wandering, weird, reckless and bewildering. From the peaks of new love to the devastating lows of two house fires, we forced ourselves to air everything in hope that doing so would bring us to a higher plane musically. This album is a collection of ideas and stories that have been melted into songs which represent the humans (or aliens) that make up The Nectars.”

The Bonnevilles Confirm Tour For May/June

The Bonnevilles are shaking Northern Ireland in a way it hasn't felt since Van Morrison & Them obliterated Club Rado in 1964 and Stiff Little Fingers blew apart The Trident in 1977. The Bonnevilles don't so much play punk blues as use it as a springboard to create a completely new genre. And now they release their fourth studio album, Dirty Photographs, with LA based Alive Natural Sound Records.

The Lurgan duo take Mississippi Hill blues and punk rock and mix their own unique dark Northern Irish punk blues stew which drew the attention of the fore mentioned Alive Natural Sound which saw them release the award nominated, Arrow Pierce My Heart, on the label in 2016.

The Bonnevilles formed in 2009 and quickly released their debut, and now legendary, album, Good Suits & Fightin’ Boots, on Motor Sounds Records.  McGibbon being a blues fan was moved to create The Bonnevilles after a brief time in another duo and being heavily inspired by RL Burnsides “ A Ass Pocket Of Whiskey” and bands like The Soledad Brothers, The Immortal Lee County Killers along with blues heavyweights like Howlin’ Wolf, Robert Johnson, Chess Records etc., combined with McMullan’s heavy metal drumming style the band has become Europe's top alternative blues act.
