“Growl” by 9 o’clock Nasty

9 o’clock Nasty….A name as unique as their music. The three piece group from Leicester, UK have been taking advantage of their ability to work hard, showcasing on the fact that they can release three EPs in three months. “Growl”, their most recent release, has three songs with a very eclectic taste, they are definitely extending the musical boundaries.

“Growl” begins with “Monstruosa” a dramatic, death welcoming tune that will have you asking “Who the hell is Monstruosa? While you may not be in the mind of the music makers, you can still enjoy “Monstruosa”. Sometimes its not always about the lyrics but about how you feel when you hear the band play. The drums and the classic guitar tone, keep a steady pace while the bass makes it feel like you are on the run.

The presence of the bass continues into “Walkman Walk” and you get the introduction to the synth. Unlike the 60s vibe that the previous release “Unspool My Heart” presented, “Walkman Walk” takes you into the 80s. The lyrics are to be taken a bit more serious, as it is about a love story. We can all relate to heart break and trying to get that special someone back.

With the EP coming to an end, you get a chance to get back into the dance groove with “Big Fish (In a Pool of Piss)”. This joyous tune reminds you that it’s always important to be on top because one day you may just end up in a shitty pool. If you’re going to be in the shit you might as well be on top.  

The alt-garage three piece has all three releases from EP “Growl” on Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, and for the first time ever, they have all three songs on YouTube with a music video attached. If you are into the unusual and love rocking out to good music, 9 o’clock Nasty is the group to listen to. They have fun lyrics, they have fun with their instruments and kooky music videos. You will have plenty of music to choose from as the group shows no signs of slowing down.
