NVDES Announces Summer Tour w/ RAC + New Video + La NVDITÉ Vol. 1 EP Out Now

Last Friday, Los Angeles-based creative collective NVDES released the La NVDITÉ, Vol. 1 EP on Maison Nvdité/Kobalt Music Recordings. An intriguing introduction to the laptop-punk of de-facto frontman Josh Ocean, the five-track collection brimming with his signature frenetic guitars and hones his prowess for crafting compulsive summery jams. In celebration of release, NVDES shares a new video for Dancer From New Yorkfeaturing his trademark imagery directed by Jenna Josepher & Giulia Marsico.

Ocean comments, “Dancer From New York was inspired by a crazy night my collaborator Sean Van Vleet had after eating at White Castle in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I moved to NYC in 2005 to pursue music. The electricity of the local indie-rock scene during that time was extremely formative for me. A lot of my music is influenced by what I was listening to and experiencing at that time. This song is my homage to that time and those influences.”

Following the release of his glitchy 2016 debut EP Life With Lobsters, NVDES garnered over 10 million streams across platforms, charted on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart, and received acclaim from the likes of FADER, NYLON, and many more. The four-track collection spins through an array of kaleidoscopic sounds that are both levitating and melodic, yet wholly original.

In celebration of release, NVDES has announced a series of tour dates as lead support forRAC. Full date listing is below!
