The track is a euphoric, indie anthem, poised to become a summer soundtrack for dreamers everywhere and ignite festival stages in the UK next month. The track premiered with Clash Magazine yesterday, where leading lady Jessica Kenny explained;
“‘We Will Run’ is a track that’s truly close to our hearts. The song talks about having the desire to leave everything behind and RUN… no looking back. I think that all of us here in The Nectars are dreamers, willing to do whatever it takes to fulfill our hearts desires.”
This is just the third track to be released by the US quartet, who have mastered an exciting sound, harking back to the New York punk / pop scene of the late 70’s but filtered through the modern sensibility of tech-savvy millennial creatives, with influences ranging from the likes of Blondie, The Ramones and Television to 90’s era No Doubt and Wolf Alice.
‘We Will Run’ follows the singles ‘Heaven’ and ‘I Want It’, which all feature on the band’s debut album Sci-Fi Television, which is due to land on the May 25th. It was recorded at Barbershop studios in New Jersey and Studio G in Brooklyn, and is a nine-song collection of short, sharp bangers, each with their own individual sound delving into art-rock debauchery.
Jessica says, “‘Sci-fi Television’ is our band aid for a deep wound. It holds back the monsters inside each of us. Beneath it, our worries and dreams cycle wildly. This is the story of our twenties, wandering, weird, reckless and bewildering. From the peaks of new love to the devastating lows of two house fires, we forced ourselves to air everything in hope that doing so would bring us to a higher plane musically.
This album is a collection of ideas and stories that have been melted into songs which represent the humans (or aliens) that make up The Nectars.”
Upon its release, The Nectars are set to whip up a storm next month with their first visit to the UK, where they will be bringing their energetic live shows to The Great Escape and Dot To Dot festival stages, showcasing exactly why they already have fans and tastemakers hyped with excitement in the US.
They will also be playing two shows in London at the House Of Vans and a headline spot at the Monarch, as well as sold-out gigs in Pontypridd and Birmingham.
Jessica comments, “We’re stoked to bring our stories to life on stage during our U.K tour next month. We are wild with excitement for what’s to come and to be able to share ourselves with anyone and everyone who cares to listen…”
