Dallas, TX trio Nervous Curtains has been sharpening its post-punk synth rock since 2008. The band’s third album, Con, is its most raw and confident record to date. The album plays up the rhythmic tension between pulsing synthesizers and live drums while merging these elements into a blast of defiant energy and enduring tunes. Nervous Curtains has created a world in which paranoia is a cultural commodity amidst a battleground of convictions and contradictions. Front-person Sean Kirkpatrick (ex-The Paper Chase, piano + synth on Swans' To Be Kind) leads the band through a bold, singular listening experience which is ominous, inviting and in a class all its own.
Features contributions from members of This Will Destroy You and Pinkish Black.
150 gram transparent blue vinyl.
Jacket and insert matte printed on white reverse board.
"Blending electronic noise with live drums and a punk rock energy, the three-piece deliver a unique, powerful sound. "Devastator" follows suit, offering up slow-burning synth lines that get punched up with ominous, thumping keyboards and an ever-present drumbeat." - Exclaim!
“Like the Screamers and Suicide, nasty Nervous Curtains disdain guitar and bass, existing strictly on mean growly keyboards, tribal drums and Kirkpatrick’s spitting, enunciated, brutish, tuneful vocals. What a winning combo!” - The Big Takeover
“Nervous Curtains have created a sound that is truly unique and unlike anything being made at the moment.” – Stripwax
