Jessica Wilde is proving to be a songwriter of true grit. Able to chart the state of her own self-worth, experience, and growth through her inimitable UK R’n’B style, on new single ‘Body’ Jess is done with hiding, playing nice and getting suckered in time after time by ‘F*ckboys’ and ‘Wasteman’, having to conform to peer pressure and the role a dominant masculine society expects of her.

For the last 2 years, NHOAH has mostly been releasing long mixes which resemble intense journeys.
So requests for shorter versions of his music have been coming in; versions which can be played on the radio. In January of this year,
NHOAH took time to rework 8 tracks. To get the same feeling that the original mixes convey, he retreated to his studio, which is crammed with music technology.
In this isolation, tracks were revised that, like a miracle distillate of a magic potion, evoke a much greater feeling in their brevity.

However, a common love of Jimmy Eat World, Pixies, Biffy Clyro and Tegan and Sarah would bring them together and influence their creative style. Even with these old school inspirations, ‘Snow’ can be compared to the likes of Wolf Alice, Cranberries and Soccer Mommy. The quartet has been supported by National UK station Planet Rock/ Kerrang!’s Wyatt.

Their latest single “Sensory Deprivation” is a hypnotic experience, narrating the feeling of isolation and not being able to use your senses to know what’s real and what’s not. These emotions instead lead you to develop feelings, thoughts, illusions and images swirling around inside your head, making it hard to decipher what’s reality.

I often have this lonely and isolated feeling even without covid. I guess it’s just my introspective mind playing games”.

I keep pinching myself to make sure I’m alive. Have we all been unknowingly transported into some cruel alternate universe where what was once confined to imagination has become reality? As I write this, California is burning and a pandemic is ravaging the globe. Police are murdering innocent people of color at-will, domestic terrorism is being thinly veiled as patriotism, facts and logic are ignored, a cartoonish, malevolent blob is nearing totalitarian control, and love is lost. This can’t be real.

“Cancel culture is a powerful weapon that when used appropriately, has the power to take down disgusting human-beings in less than 140 characters; something most court systems can’t manage to do in 140 days. But like a vigilante with no moral code or restraint, it can easily tip toward the dark-side. This song talks about the inappropriate usage of cancel culture. Metaphorically, a virus in the system; that searches through a person’s past and finds the one thing that may be able to bring them down as a petty response or knee jerk reaction to a human occasion. What cancel culture in this instance fails to take into account is the fallibility of humanity.

The song itself was heavily influenced by the sounds of the 80’s & we’re so excited to have a video that matches that vibe. We did our absolute best to pay homage to Slash & Guns n’ Roses by recreating (to the best of our ability) the November Rain solo.
