The Nevertones formed in Bracknell in June 2012; since then, they've played some of London's top venues, such as Monto Water Rats, Camden's Monarch, Proud and Hawley Arms, as well as Hard Rock Cafe and SoundTracks festival. In March 2013 they released their debut single "Katy Don't Worry" (available on digital download) and their debut EP with C3U Records, produced by the legendary John Gallen (Queen, Motorhead, The Damned, AC/DC and many others).
There's so many elements to the Nevertones' sound...Nathan Never's sharp lyrical wit weaves modern-day society critiques with unconventional (anti-)love songs; he also dabbles in the art of hook-making to provide ear-worm catchiness. Lorenzo Rutili's guitar-playing absorbs the lessons of a bevy of guitarists and merges them into high-octane, aggressive riffs and licks. Ant Stride lays down the bottom end like a James Jamerson of indie, with an interesting approach to bass line writing that gives the songs extra oomph. Finally, Conor Prentice pounds on the skins fiercely, his metal background barely contained and provides a rock-steady back-beat with flourishes galore. The result is a fusion of the past and present of rock and pop, with each band member's bag of influences contaminating each track, so apparently diverse, yet so united by the will to create something out of the ordinary. It's so difficult to put a label on it, we invite you to CHECK IT OUT YOURSELVES.
