NKOS – Can’t Wait

Just 3 singles in, Beatbuzz Records proteges NKOS have now signed a new publishing deal with London based OML Sync and had 2 tracks snapped up for a (HUGE) series coming out in 2021 on a shall-remain-unnamed-global-streaming service.. Their moody, dark synth and driving rhythms have an obvious cinematic quality that wraps its beats tightly around you, so filtering through to the tastemakers, ad-land and soundtrack compilers with indecent haste was always going to happen.

‘Can’t Wait’ is the bands moodiest proposition to date, still moving the isolation dancefloor and incorporating a muscular New Order bassline, a late night ‘Siouxsie at the disco’ synth vibe, ‘Disintegration’ drums and bringing Nancy Natali’s seductive vocals to the fore… proving the dead can indeed dance. Surviving The Golden Age said the band include industrial rock, EDM and house music amongst their palette, and all the elements are blended here – weaving a path through the early hours with malice.

It’s a hugely atmospheric and powerful journey through the eighties new wave scene but through twisted contemporary filters – and it’s brilliant. NKOS are making big waves for a reason.

The debut album ‘From Dust To Life’ has been set for a early 2021 release, featuring tracks co-produced by Jagz Kooner, with mixing and mastering by Maurizio Baggio – known for his work alongside Boy Harsher and The Soft Moon. Aside from the ubiquitous digital release, expect hipster-friendly metal-boxed cassettes and a bold array of promotional activity.

“Dark and seductive… spine tingling, synth driven” – ​​postpunk.com

CAN’T WAIT

You spend words on me
to smooth out my soul
I know they’re really meant for
someone else’s ego

Now you’re about to
hit the road
can’t wait for you to
leave me alone

Why do you spend words on me
to smooth out my soul
I know they’re really meant for
someone else’s ego

And now you’re about to
hit the road
I can’t wait for you to
leave me alone
