DIY rock band of the moment The Nyx are releasing the second of their ‘full moon’ singles, timed to coincide with the lunar movement. Today’s full moon in particular is known as a blue moon (which means there are two moon cycles in the month … crikey). Anyway. The track is called ‘Patience’, and those lovely Nyxers have kindly given LOUD WOMEN the exclusive first listen to it today!
It’s a feast of classic rock, with massive portions of pulsating guitar layers, alongside Simone’s emotive and strident voice. The Nyx’s Becky says, “It’s about the frustration of giving all your energy to someone and getting nothing in return. It’s a track we like always completely lose ourselves to when we play it live.” Enjoy.
London-based DIY rock band The Nyx are releasing a song every full moon in 2018. Working with Grammy award-winning producer Tomasso Collavia (Muse, Phoenix) they’ve recorded a batch of new belters which they’ll self-release throughout the year.
The band is named after ‘Nyx’, the Greek goddess of night and is an all-female group – so celebrating the monthly cycle of the full moon seemed an ideal strategy. It represents how the band want 2018 to be the year women rise up in rock music.
‘Patience’ will be available on Spotify, and all other major music platforms from today.
