A new video surfaced last week from a concert at the Yerevan State Puppet Theatre of the track Room N11 – which is a darker countenance than music of their previously featured, shining a light on a band, who, were it not for geo-political location would, I am certain, have a more globally known face.
Nemra is a band which has quickly become a staple on the site and this time around a song, which they have not got around to releasing as a recording and only revealed acoustically as a demo, though known to their live audience was recently captured in live performance – Daisy.
The final selection of 2017 for the Editors’ Choice for Band Of The Month.
Before the year closes I would once again like to thank all the musicians from around the world for their endeavours, whether they make contact, are ever featured or not – you do make the world a brighter place, thank you. Somehow I feel the video shot live in pouring rain with fans enjoying the music in this the Editors’ selection for this month extrapolates this thought far better than text can ever express…
The Armenian electro-rock band Nemra revealed the single Born In 94 on the 3rd.
For a while now Nemra and I have been exchanging emails with timing never quite being matched, so it is with some delight, finally everything has aligned with Born In 94.
Immediately on hitting play the listener finds themselves joining in with the skipping beat that joyfully steps through the room. Keys and bass conjoin to deepen the score marks of the footsteps while the guitar is freed to give the song its texturing while the vocal pirouettes through the ears leaving the audience delighted to have spent time in their company.
As importantly Nemra are not a one trick pony as they are equally adept are delivering more compacted blues infused rock’n’roll and it comes as no surprise they are well received in their locale, it is however a sadness that their music is not better known internationally.
