New Audio: The Scuzzy and Rousingly Anthemic, Dance Punk of NVDES’ Latest Single “Turning Heads”

With the release of 2016’s Life With Lobsters, an album consisting of glitchy, summery indie dance pop, the Los Angeles-based collective NVDES fronted by founding member and primary songwriter Josh Ocean received over 10 million streams across all digital platforms, landed on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart — and as a result, also received phrase from The FaderNylon and others. Building on a growing profile, the project’s latest single “Turning Heads” off their forthcoming La NVDITÉ EP will further cement Ocean’s reputation for crafting scuzzy, breakneck dance punk along the lines of Sound of Silver-era LCD Soundsystem, Radio 4 and others, complete with angular guitar chords, a propulsive bass line, boom-bap beats and a rousingly anthemic hook. And while clearly being summery, the track also manages to be incredibly dance floor friendly.
