NOBRO release their highly anticipated new EP, Live Your Truth Shred Some Gnar via Big Scary Monsters, with seven searing tracks of scorched earth rock and roll. Listen / purchase HERE. They also share single ‘Eat Slay Chardonnay’.
“Live Your Truth Shred Some Gnar is about needing to believe in something. For us, that’s ourselves. Believing that we can and will do it,” bassist/vocalist Kathryn McCaughey encourages. “You have to live your truth and cannot lose sight of who you are. Even when you feel like a loser cleaning puke out of the bathroom sink, or because of rejection, heartache, and a seemingly never-ending list of reasons to give up. You have to shred some gnar because you are the only person who gets to live your own life.”
McCaughey adds about their brand new track, “EAT. SLAY. CHARDONNAY. This song was originally 1:14 since we wanted something fast and punchy. We cut out all the bullshit and went right to the point, all while raising a toast to yourself.”
Originally formed by bassist/vocalist Kathryn McCaughey, the quartet that also includes guitarist Karolane Carbonneau, drummer Sarah Dion and keyboardist/percussionist Lisandre Bourdages has been winning fans since their breakout performance at the 2017 WayHome Festival and subsequent tours with FIDLAR, PUP, Alexisonfire and The Distillers.
Working once again with producer Thomas D’Arcy (July Talk, The Sheepdogs, Yukon Blonde), the main job of Live Your Truth Shred Some Gnar, mixed by two-time Grammy Award winning engineer Dave Schiffman (Vampire Weekend, Adele), is to harness NOBRO’s raw power with heavy doses of fun and flair. That’s brilliantly displayed on standout tracks such as singles ‘Better Each Day’, ‘Julia’, and ‘Bye Bye Baby’, gaining support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, DIY, UPSET, Kerrang! Magazine, Rock Sound, Rough Trade, DORK, and more.
Call them punk rock if you like, but its long-held perceptions are just some of the things NOBRO are here to challenge—in the loudest and most exciting way possible.
