Reliably informed



Released 15.09.23







Stepping into the hallowed electric halls of early 80’s post-punk optimism we see a welcome return for Brooklyn-based trio Nation of Language, who present a collection of subtly Krautrock-inspired synth pop songs.

I could make a lazy referral to OMD…but I won’t, their range is less about the object but more about the feel, the fixation and the intensity of this world’s emotional perspective. Musically it’s reverential and as analogue as they could be, with Holy Ghost member Nick Millhiser producing, there is a yearning danceability throughout that embraces some self-perceived shortcomings in the equipment but also pays much respect to their heartfelt live experience, moving in every sense of the word.
