As has become customary for our birthday celebrations, we’re extremely excited to bring you another compilation album featuring the cream of the North East crop.

The album is FREE to download from our Bandcamp page; today, we focus on Nano Kino’s Never Seemed To Happen.

Nano Kino – Never Seemed To Happen

Quickly gaining a reputation for their ethereal sound, Nano Kino have become purveyors of blissed-out grooves, often shrouded in copious amounts of haze. Duncan Lloyd describes Never Seemed To Happen as “a song of a memory, we sent the idea back and forth, writing it over a couple of days, it’s become the first thing we have pressed to record.”

It’s understandable why Nano Kino were so keen to commit it to tape, with the band reigning in the reverb, instead opting for a clean cut and crisp tone, whilst retaining their shoegaze vibe. Starting out with laidback vocals and jangly guitars, before the stabs of guitar and pounding drums take hold of the track, Never Seemed To Happen transcends its graceful opening before becoming an exciting blast of psych rock. With their newfound polished sound, Nano Kino have taken everything up a notch with this beast of a track. (LH)
