Having missed their debut EP a couple years back, Lose Control is our first acquaintance with UK rock band Nishe, a long overdue one if their new single is the kind of thing we have been missing. Without turning the alternative/indie rock world on its head, the track is a sizzling temptation on ears and imagination but equally a lingering draw which hangs around like a brooding lover luring attention again and again. In a never ceasing torrent of tracks wanting to seduce your attention, it is a quality when aligned to impressive craft that does the band no harm at all.
Hailing from London, Nishe consists of Giovanni Zappa (lead vocals, guitar, electronics), Harold Wilson (bass, backing vocals), and Thomas Romer-Smith (drums). It is a trio uniting their individual influences for a sound which fuses guitar led snarl and adventure with evocative and similarly infectious electronics. The This is Nishe EP was quick proof of that, its creation coming three months after the band emerged in the August of 2013. It was acclaimed and supported by quickly grouping fans as well as online press and radio shows, including BBC Introducing, on both sides of the Atlantic, many marking Nishe out as the band to watch closely.
Earlier this year, they visited New York where new inspirations struck the band’s songwriting and imagination, Lose Control the first slice of magnetic evidence to its effect. From the opening lure of synths, the song is in command, the rhythmic swing which follows increasing its potency as too the confident vocals of Zappa. Continuing to stroll with an infectiously smiling swagger, the track draws in richer flames of guitar, emotive tenacity, and simply more intensive enterprise from all aspects.
Increasingly compelling with every listen, the track is a tenacious blaze of guitar and electro rock, a contagion which may not be the best song heard this year but it will be one of those most remembered once it infects the psyche.
Lose Control is out on October 9th
