Combining rhythm and blues, psych music, and funk with a peculiar modern punk look, England’s NANCY is most-fitted to pay tribute to new wave, which is exactly what he does for his new single “Call Me On Your Telephone.” The energetic new track is powered by an infectious rhythm that allows for full exposure of NANCY’s bravado-filled vocals and sick-reverbed choruses whose guitars spiral turbulently towards the next verse.
This summer is set to sizzle for NANCY as his EP Happy Oddities will be released on July 3rd. NANCY has been rapidly spreading across the British media’s system as BBC radio, NME, and Clash have all taken the time to acknowledge the rising artist and his tendencies for the unconventional, the picturesque, and the provocative. The Warhol-esque landscapes of NANCY add color to his persona and intrigue to his music, “Call Me On Your Telephone” exemplifies this in its instrumental vibrancy.
A bit rock, a bit psych, the gritty-glamorous music of NANCY is as wild as it needs to be and as indiscreet as you would hope. The upcoming release of Happy Oddities should reveal the full personality of this eccentric artist, but as it stands, “Call Me On Your Telephone” is a teaser with enough powder for an explosive craving.
