Label: Relapse Records
Genre: Shoegaze, Noise Rock, Alternative Rock
Shoegaze is back (well, sort of). The genre made famous in the UK has seen a resurgence across the world in recent years, particularly among bands that blend shoegaze with heavy metal, such as Deafheaven and Alcest. But there are bands that keep the genre to its true form, and leading the pack is Nothing. Led by Domenic Palermo, the band has slowly but surely risen up the ranks in the alternative rock scene. 2016 was a big year for them, with the release of Tired of Tomorrow, an album in which the sound may have a sunny, gentle disposition, however the lyrics and themes are anything but. As beautiful as it is dark, Nothing shows us that there is still hope in a world full of uncertainty.
