If you like your garage punk that goes like a train on speed, Bad Nerves' frenzied, psychedelic roller coaster of a track, ‘New Shapes’, will do much to shake your own nerves, and not to mentio, rattle your bones.
The track - which comes with a video directed and produced by the East London outfit's Bobby Nerves - is taken from their self-titled debut album, set for release on November 20. With an infectiously feral, punk rock energy, Bad Nerves set out to promote unity, tolerance and equality with their latest single. Blasting off the starting line with unrelenting fuzzed-out guitars and undeniable vocal hooks soundtracked at the pace of a bullet train, ‘New Shapes’ is the perfect injection of positivity that we all need.
"'New Shapes' is about accepting people for who they are and celebrating our differences," says Bobby. "I cannot understand why anybody would discriminate against another human being because they’re not the same. Be it race, gender, sexuality, or struggling with mental illness... It’s baffling how concerned people are with these things when none of it matters in the slightest. Be kind, be considerate, be open to new and different ideas, and listen to Bad Nerves."
