Finnish noise rock duo NYOS deliver a clairvoyant Celebration of the present, written at a time when that present was shimmering just like the feathers of the cover art courtesy of animal photographer Zac Herr. Combining the danceable grooves of Battles with Sonic Youth – infused noise bursts and the yearning electric melodies of And So I Watch You From Afar, Celebration is a defiantly joyful, loud, and festive affair. A promising cure for the drudgery of the times we live in.
Despite being named after a murderous lake in Cameroon, NYOS‘ sound has always oozed with vivacity and a sense of upward momentum. In 2012, guitarist Tom Brooke left behind his old hometown Leeds and moved from Britain to Finland in pursuit of his dream to build his own recording studio. There he met drummer Tuomas Kainulainen who had earned his spurs in the local punk scene. The connection was instant and magical, and in the first couple of practice sessions the duo wrote the incredible Vltava (2015), a 26-minute long six-part instrumental rock opus that already portrayed a lot of the characteristics of the duo’s contemporary sound, a loop-driven blend of math, noise and post-rock. Ever since, the band has been touring and recording tirelessly, self-releasing three full-length albums and playing over 300 shows with acts like Zeal & Ardor, Esben & The Witch, and The Comet Is Coming.
