NEW ADVENTURES IN POP 010

Elefant Records is thrilled to introduce, through our New Adventures in Pop Collection, NATURE SET, the new project from Reenie Hollis, bassist of THE LONG BLONDES. They are a punk-pop quartet risen from the ashes of NAVVY (Daf, Marie and Claire, the rest of NATURE SET, come from there), with the intention of spreading the festive spirit of the B-52’s but with a more anarchic perspective and a clear philosophy: “to songwrite by committee and pass the mic”.

Reenie (Bass and vocals), Daf (Guitar y vocals), Marie (Drums and vocals) and Claire (Synthesizers and vocals), recorded this EP in Sheffield in Alan Smyth’s 2fly studios (PULP, ARCTIC MONKEYS, RICHARD HAWLEY...).

The EP is full of rough, frenetic guitars, as you can hear on the title track “Enough Is Enough”, and it is overflowing with the same electricity and that youthful urgency the the early KAISER CHIEFS had and THE RAMONES had throughout their career as a group. “You or Nobody” enjoys a poppier air, but with an underlying post-punk rhythm and marvellous choruses. “At Least Not Today” is more excessively energetic, with a hyper-addictive melody, a synthesizer line that pushes you onto the dance floor, and a pop-punk attitude that reminds us of ECHOBELLY, BLONDIE, and those Californians, ROCKET. Finally, “The Engineer” throws itself headfirst into post-punk, the darkest song on the album, but with the same level of addiction.

When attitude is the most important, when the band as a whole is looking in one direction and pushing ahead with all its might, when life overflows from every bone in your body and you need to scream with the world… It’s just a matter of nature.

Track Name: Enough Is Enough
We are a joke
And this is our play
Presented to you
My bed is my stage

We pick out the soundtrack
We fix you a drink
We fetch you a high backed chair
We dress up in pink

We just don't know when enough is enough

We are all talk
And we've got something to say
Lie after lie
Page after page

And we keep on going
We've been here all along
Your house is on fire
Your children are gone

We just don't know when enough is enough

We line up pairs of shoes
So we can play shop
The windows are open
We're in the stocks

We paint on our whiskers
I wind back my watch
I kick off my shoes, yeah
I switch the light off

We wanna feel real,
We wanna free-wheel
We just don't know when enough is enough
We wanna go down
We wanna go drown
We just wanna get you off

Enough is enough
Track Name: You Or Nobody
I just saw you walking
I fell for you in record time
You were only talking
But I was picking up the sign
I saw the line

I know that you've been hurting
Is it fair to take it out on me?
I'm the one who has been helping
But things have turned out differently
We'll make it you'll see

I'm not sure you realise
I'm not playing round this time
This is really it for me
It's either you or nobody
Nobody

Another Friday evening
And soon the weekend will be gone
We did a lot of sleeping
But not a whole lot else was done
Now Monday's begun

I'm not sure you realise
I'm not playing round this time
This is really it for me
It's either you or nobody

Tell me what is on your mind
I couldn't stand it if you lied
I wanna make the most of this
I'm just so lucky to have found your kiss
I found your kiss
Track Name: At Least Not Today
We're serious, you won't make us laugh
You're jealous, but that phase will pass
Don't smoke donÂ't drink don't steal don't want to
... At least not today

We're serious, well trying to be
You're friends with us? That's most unlikely
Don't smile donÂ't laugh don't cry don't want to
... At least not today

Spend time with us, we'll make it quick
You'll find out just what makes us tick
Don't think that we won't make an impact
When we get raw

Come see us and walk in our shoes
We're the future of yesterday's news
Someone to try us, occupy us
Is what we're looking for.

We took a wrong turn a few pages back
Now there's us and there's you, an unfortunate fact
So just keep on walking, don't show us the light
WeÂ're happy in here not getting it quite right

We took a wrong turn a few pages back
Now there's us and there's you and still no friendship pact
So just keep on walking don't show us the light
We're happy in here not getting it quite right
Track Name: The Engineer
I sing the body electric
You cut the meat from the bone
I peeled back layers of static
And now I just can't be alone

I am the body electric
I am the meat and the bone
I am this fear fantastic
You will never be alone

You bring me scraps from the table
I was once an engineer
You regard me with a steady gaze
I don't know why I come here

You take the scraps so grateful
I am now the engineer
Avert your eyes while I sleep so fitful
Feel my hand, feel your fear

I wring my hands with the feeling
You are sleeping like a dog
I keep watch while you are resting

Eyes, eye-fringes, iris of the eye, eye-brows
And the waking or sleeping of the lids
Mouth, tongue, lips, teeth, roof of the mouth jaws

Jaw-hinges
Eye-fringes
Jaw-hinges

I sing the body electric
You cut the meat from the bone
I peeled back layers of static
And now I just can't be alone

I am the body electric
I am the meat and the bone
I am this fear fantastic
You will never be alone

Eyes, eye-fringes, iris of the eye, eye-brows
And the waking or sleeping of the lids,
Mouth, tongue, lips, teeth, roof of the mouth jaws
