NERVOUS TREND: Self-titled: Cassette

May 21, 2014

Nervous Trend’s dynamic is built on an affinity for the darker realms of the post-punk genre’s recent resurgence. So much so that it’s hard for me not to mention Barcelona’s Belgrado as an obvious direct influence as evidenced by a number of glaring nuances (bass/drum interplay, lady vocals, icy guitar tones) although mixing in some fast parts here and there is a nice touch. I’m into it, for sure, but only time will tell if Nervous Trend will be able to do more than capitalize on the path that Belgrado has already blazed.
