Noise pop quartet Asta Rangu have a new single out. Check out Nico:
Speaking about Nico, Songwriter Richard Ley-Hamilton commented that it's “a reflection on maturity and nostalgia, and how potential and reality are often in disharmony. In a sense, our tendency to reminisce colours and revalues our present, and in doing so, we revive old narratives at the expense of progress.”
Nico is the second of two tracks recorded in a session in late 2020 with Dunedin engineer and producer Tom Bell at Chicks Hotel. Along with its sister track from this session, I Dream, the release of Nico sees an end to what the band are calling ‘bridging singles’; two non-album tracks that bridge the gap between the 2017 EP Plasticine and the band’s forthcoming debut record. The record, pencilled for release in early 2022, which will be co-produced with De Stevens (Marlin’s Dreaming). Keep an eye out for it!
