An exciting glimpse into the future.
Nelson Can - EP 3

An exciting glimpse into the future.

Label: Alcopop! Records
Released: 29th September 2017
Rating: ★★★★

Danish trio Nelson Can are going places fast. Showing that guitars sometimes ain't all that, the newly Alcopop! Records stars have a wonderful time on ‘EP 3'.

‘Miracle' is a joyous slice of disco-tinged post-punk while on ‘Break Down Your Walls' the trio of Maria, Selina and Signe use simply bass and drums to whip up an impressive storm.

There's a playful sense of mystery at work too, for example on the theatrical dark waltz of ‘Digging Your Grave'. The fuzzy bass that underpins closing track ‘Stonewall Frank' highlights the band cutting loose on a post-punky stormer.

Making a statement while offering an exciting glimpse into the future, Nelson Can's ‘EP 3' suggests they're one to watch. Martyn Young
