With innate danceability and uncontainable energy, NOPRISM are back with their propulsive new release ‘Order’.
To mark the release, the four-piece have also announced their first ever live fixture; a hometown launch gig at Little Buildings in Newcastle on 10th July. TICKETS
Like Duran Duran and The Human League arm-wrestling with Chvrches and Justice, NOPRISM join together the forces of new wave with synthwave and put them on steroids. And this Spring, the band flex their musical might with the muscular new single: “Order”.
Filtering through sounds of 70s New York and early Chicago house, the group melds the two styles with their own love of distorted and angular guitar histrionics. What emerges is a track that pulsates with retro-tinged electronica that the band have coined as ‘‘filthy disco’. Toying with a mixture of blossoming synths and driving electro-beats, “Order” fashion touch-points of old-school house, disco and 80s club culture into something invigoratingly futuristic.
With lyrics musing on dystopian political agendas and the indoctrinating power of propaganda, Andrew Young of NOPRISM explains further of the track:
“We wanted to make a head-rush of a song that would have a great intensity when we finally get to play live, filled with the sounds of 303 and the piano synonymous with house music… Lyrically, it’s more-or-less about the attitudes of Brexit Britain and the ability of the press and politicians to repeat their agenda enough times until it becomes true. Exploring the illusory truth effect common with politics. Donald Trump, for example, was pretty fond of the technique.”
Produced by NOPRISM, the track was mixed by acclaimed US producer Carl Bahner (Joywave, Cheerleader, Transviolet) and mastered by Nicholas di Lorenzo.
