WATCH: NONN – ‘Need’

Swedish musician NONN (aka Christian Eldefors) has released his first single ‘Need’ via London label Fuzz Club records; and it’s a restless, urgent, ominous listen. With elements of post-punk, psychedelia, and electronica; it’s difficult to define (or dislike) NONN’s bold and brooding sound.

Christian spent the winter of 2016 living in a warehouse-turned-rehearsal-space in a gloomy corner of Stockholm, and his bleak, icy surroundings inevitably informed and influenced his recordings. His tracks blur the line between sharp, glacial post-punk, and the industrial electronic aesthetic of the 80s. They are influenced as much by Kraftwerk, New Order, and Suicide as they are by modern outfits such as label-mates The Underground Youth, and Throw Down Bones.

Although contemporary in feel, it’s hard to listen to these tracks and not picture them sound-tracking moments of sheer euphoria in some sticky-floored warehouse in 80s Berlin. The track’s nature makes it all the more alluring, with droning synths, drum-machine percussion, and post-punk guitar ringing out next to echoing, forlorn vocals. NONN will be releasing his debut self-titled EP on the 26th of May via Fuzz Club Records, but you can watch the video for latest single ‘Need’ below.
