As long as I can remember, I’ve been disillusioned by the way society functions. When I was young, I had to withstand the gaslighting of adults in my life who no dought thought they were keeping me “safe” by shutting down my questions and denying my perspective. So when NŪR talks about feeling a “great despair” trying to exist in a system that encourages us to energetically eat one another alive, I understand that feeling, although their circumstances in Haifa, Israel, are much more urgent and immediate than mine in Vancouver, Canada.
Their new EP Negative Transfer channels that despair so well that I can feel it rattling my bones. Their dissonant riffs scour my eardrums with pure rage, the vocals sound like every voice ever suppressed rising all at once, and their percussion takes heavy to a bottomless depth. It’s a cathartic listen and reminds me that every system comes crumbling down one day and as long as I dedicate my life to chipping away at its rotten foundations I can make a difference for my descendants. The record comes out via Suicide Records on October 15th — pre-order it here. Right now hear Negative Transfer in full below, and push back against a world that wants you too tired and afraid for revolution.
NŪR´s second EP “Negative Transfer” is a terrarium of the beginning of the current lineup. The slithering snake became a rabies caste boar that hastily will eat whatever comes in the way. NŪR represents the great despair we feel from our fellows and surroundings living in these late-capitalist days engulfed by occupation, as it can be tearfully explained in the N10 studio, which is our sanctuary.
