Nasty Little Lonely
Nasty Little Lonely are a powerhouse. Fusing elements of Industrial Music and grinding Noise Rock with infectious hooks should be a contradiction of terms, yet the unit pull it off with ease. Hailing from the Bristol punk and noise scene that recently spat Idles into the music world’s consciousness, they bring an atmosphere of dread through the crunching stabs and sheets of sound produced by guitarist Ben Fisher, whilst frontwoman Charlie B’s bass and Martin G’s drums grind with the mechanical menace of The Jesus Lizard or Shellac. Charlie sneers through her vocal with the disgust of a young Nick Cave, and an inflection reminiscent of Kat Bjelland of the perennially underrated Babes in Toyland.
