Nu Sensae

Have you seen ‘Over the Edge’? It’s a movie, starring a young Matt Dillon, about angry disillusioned teenagers, suburban boredom, and violent rebellion. And if ‘Over the Edge’ was remade today, Vancouver doom punkers Nü Sensae would own that soundtrack. Originally a duo, Daniel Pitout and Andrea Lukic blasted their audience with tight, sure drums and commanding bass. It’s the kind of music that sounds tough, unrestrained. They recently added Brody McKight to the line-up beefing up their intensity.

Their songs sound like they were recorded in a dark basement somewhere – minimal production and a little creepy. And the best part is Lukic’s growls, screams and mesmerizing vocals boring through you. Nü Sensae is dark enough to be goth, not pretentiously arty, and loud enough to get you thrashing. Or the perfect accompaniment to sitting in your dark living room, like some dejected teen, staring at static on the television.

With their forthcoming sophomore release, on Seattle imprint Suicide Squeeze,  you can bet there’s going to be a whole audience of kids tuning in and rocking out.
