Nerves are a band from the west of Ireland but based in Dublin writing and playing original music with a diverse set of sonic templates ranging from clean shimmering guitar sounds, heavy distorted sections , ethereal soundscapes and more. Nerves take influence from a diverse range of bands and artists such as The 1975, Wolf Alice, Girl Band, My Bloody Valentine, The Cure, Joy Division, Idles and many more to create their own unique brand of guitar pop. Branding themselves as post-pop, they combine elements of contemporary and 80's pop and rock with unlikely genres such as post-punk, noise rock and experimental electronic music to create a sound that is as melodic as it is aggressive.
Their live shows are intense and fast paced, with very few moments of respite, jumping from the funky 80's feel of songs like Pastel to the relentless barrage of noise of post-punk tracks like Slow Drive. Nerves are a band who truly don't care for sticking to one genre yet still manage to create a sound and feel that is uniquely their own...
"‘Faces’ is performed and produced with complete abandon, pushed by a vital inner-energy that will serve Nerves well and introduces the group as an immediate new act to watch on the scene." - The Last Mixed Tape
"Their first single ‘Faces’ is a high octane bob that blends sure rock influences with post-pop and punk undercurrents and yet the heavy distorted sections are contrasted by shimmering guitar tones that conjure images of The 1975." - Nialler9
"When we heard these guys are fans of GIRL BAND and MY BLOODY VALENTINE we were immediately sold and we had to do a feature!!" - Finbar Hoban
