KAMIKAZE NURSE ‘Stimuloso’

Jun 23, 2022 | Punk, Reviews

Six string mangling & inventive melodies

Straight out of the blocks we hear a cavalcade of 80s/90s indie vibes recalling Throwing Muses and Lush on Stimuloso, the latest offering from Kamikaze Nurse. It’s an exuberant noise from the Vancouver group with KC Wei’s vocals playing a starring role: heart-stopping shrieks, and a debate regarding the pronunciation of Neu leap out from the melee.

The echoes of the past fade away as the sound solidifies with a harsher, more propulsive edginess. And, even though the album retains a woozy undercurrent akin to Empath, they successfully marry six string mangling to their inventive melodic inventions: the title track is our current chart topping stress buster.
