Memphis Punks-To-Watch Nots Share “Decadence”
Stream the lead single from the girl gang’s Goner Records debut.
UPDATE 11/18/14: Yesterday, The AV Club premiered electric visuals for "Decadence" featuring dizzying footage of the band playing live, floral backdrops, and some cartoonish effects. Watch the clip up above.
Though Nots started out a duo, turning out barebones post-punk with just Natalie Hoffmann's screechy guitars and Charlotte Watson's frantic drumming, they've recently bulked up to a quartet. "Decadence"—the lead single from the Memphis band's debut full-length—features a noticeable textural upgrade from the no-fi squall of earlier singles; there's an analog-sounding synth line zagging around the rhythmic shredding and high-pitched shrieks, for one. We Are Nots is out November 11th through Tennessee scum-rock staple Goner Records; that's the Hellraiser-referencing cover art below.
