Synth punk that grabs you like a meat hook, that’s the painful truth behind this incendiary trio from Brussels. Nowadays we see the misery of the world on our screens, rushing in real time, and that accumulation of pure discontent simply needs a potent outlet. Cry doesn’t cry the tears of a crocodile, but the band does have that same biting power and determination to devour prey in every possible way. Beware!
Nospray is the new sound in the Rotterdam underground, a collective of three individuals who rummage the darkest corners of the world for the coolest bands, to ensure that these bands play in Rotterdam. Nospray puts emphasis on contemporary punk, post-punk, garage and new wave music, but they will not shun other sounds that they believe are in that same spirit.
Nospray was founded by Timo Croes and Lukas Jansen of Pig Frenzy and Gary van Niks of local imprint Spazz Records. Since June 2019, the trio has brought myriad international bands to Rotterdam, for example, Powerplant (UK), Marbled Eye (US), Funeral State (UK) and Never (UK). They also represent burgeoning Dutch bands such as Daisy Daisy and Pressure Pact.
