The England based electro-indie outfit Nolita View made available the EP How Could I Loose? within the past five hours.

Nolita View - How could I lose?

Nolita View

Those of longer stay will recall the iterations of Nolita View dating back many a year – for those new to the site – this a good starting point with the four track EP that is due for official release on the 14th.

Opening with Runaways – a sleighted hand of ideas as shoegaze and mod coalesce in just under two and three quarters of intrigue delivered with some mastery.

Next is Caroline, which for those who know the band will cast minds back to previous material as ’70s surf finds itself shrouded by punctuation of guitar that is able to stud holes in the wall.

My pick of the release – The Road – gives a sense that Nolita View are not reticent of their past, nor perturbed by exploring new ideas in a track that finds them in finest flow as the deeper registers of more forceful bass slips around the room, to be joined by sharply strung guitar that is allowed marginal, but, distinct vibration as percussion skips into the ears from which vocal – akin to a figure-skater gliding elegantly on the ice prior to throwing in an unanticipated axel-jump – shimmers through the ears.

The closer – Fire It Up – discovers a new mood of more algebraic equation and a direction of sharp angles with sheered guitar and passages of swatches of colouration provided by synthesised echoing delay and chord changes. It will be interesting to discover if Maths-rock is a new journey for Nolita View or an eddy.

The latest track by Peoples Palace – due for official release on the 26th surfaced a few hours ago – Runaways.

Sometimes ‘driving music’ is En Pointe and having spent much of the past week on the road in 200 mile daily commutes to and fro meetings, this made perfect sense to me today.
