The crazy guys from Leicester, UK are back and you couldn’t be happier. “Darker Star” from 9 o’clock Nasty is a long awaited release, and in just three days it’s received 20,000 listens. The threesome describes “Darker Star” as the deliciously analogue power ballad that was foretold years ago.
The crickets…the siren…the guitar…all things that make a great introduction. Even before the vocals, you know how kick ass this song will be. The calm yet uproaring song is one to love, the group has been known to be eclectic and unique, “Darker Star” is no different.
The first demo of “Darker Star” was originally made with a cardboard box and an acoustic guitar with 5 strings and they say that spirit lives on in the final product. You can almost feel the rawness of the cardboard box in the single, if you have never heard of 9 o’clock Nasty, then “Darker Star” is a great introduction.
Although their sound is always changing they still have a core sound that you will become obsessed with. 9 o’clock Nasty makes music for all the freaks and geeks of the world. Go see why everyone is loving them, get even weirder and watch all their videos…it will send you into a rabbit hole that you never want to get out of.
