NOSAJ THING – SINGLE REVIEW

Nosaj Thing – UG (Innovative Leisure) 
Nosaj Thing - UG


Release Date: Out Now

I’m undecided on quite why I love this new track from LA creator Nosaj Thing. ‘UG’ is the single that precedes a new album and, on the one hand, it is a macabre slice of unhinged electro that pulses and swerves like a skittish and paranoid drunk trying to get home without being followed. This would perfectly suit the end credits of a recent episode of Twin Peaks and fits in with the David Lynch aesthetic of high art mixed in with beats and a sense of the left of centre being the norm. Equally, there’s something beautiful Aphex Twin-esque about the incomplete vocals and juddering beats that keep you on the edge of your seat, second guessing the whole way through. It’s great to see this kind of music going out on an extensive live tour around the US and Canada rather than just being broadcast from a bedroom or studio somewhere anonymous.
