“Great Electronica from Australia”
First single from their self-titled LP (Aarght! Records AARGHT030CD) issued in the springtime of 2014.
The spirit of Alan Vega (June 23, 1938 – July 16, 2016) lives on through countless groups the world over, check: Melbourne’s Nun (est.2011), who are: Jenny Branagan (vocals and synthesiser); Steven Harris (drum machines and synthesiser); Hugh Young (Synthesiser) and Tom Hardisty (bass synthesiser).
The group formed over a shared love of bands such as Iron Curtain, Sixx, Coil, Throbbing Gristle, Snowy Red, John Carpenter, Goblin and Christian Death. The band also draw aesthetic influence from 80’s BBC sci-fi dramas such as Threads, the children’s occult classic Moondial, British 70’s horror films such as Blood on Satan’s Claw, Carpenter’s classic They Live and Cronenberg’s Videodrome, as well as the esoteric imagery of books such as Readers Digest: Strange Stories & Amazing Facts, where images of possession, stigmata, spirit photography and apparitions sit beside tales of the Loch Ness Monster and moving statues.
Featuring huge gnarly basslines, shimmering analogue synths, punishing drum machine and the most malevolent vocal presence since the Dalek, Nun’s sound ranges from sinister drone orgy to hyperkinetic synth punk and uber-saturated gothic psychosis.
