Philly punks Nothing are back from the brink with a new record that draws on some really, really bad times.
The Duke Spirit : Dark Is Light Enough
Pass the wet wipes...
of this single. She sweeps up all three emotions in a voice that's seductive
and creepy in equal measures, a low rasp that
drags the goosebumps from under your skin with the simple promise/threat: "You're in my heart". It's enough to freak out the rest of her band, clearly, who spend 'Dark Is Light Enough' trying to speed away from her with an urgent, low-slung drone that's part krautrock cool, part lo-fi noodle-doodle.
Like The Fiery Furnaces, ,The Duke Spirit are unnerving eccentrics, whispering sweet nothings while placing a deeply inappropriate hand on your knee. A fantastic, fantastic single, but you'll want a long cold shower afterwards.
