Fusing the sounds of the underground with surreal visuals, N I T E F I SH is carving out a space of his own.
Based in Dublin and Stockholm, N I T E F I S H is a new audio-visual project slowly infiltrating the digital swamplands with electronic punk music made from glitched-out projections and mangled sounds. His music reflects the broad following of punks, ravers, and noise-heads that have started to coalesce around the project's explosive performances at both late-night open airs in the forests of Stockholm and indie gigs around Dublin.
His new single 'Moneyfuck,' is similarly an eclectic mix of forward-thinking styles. Drawing as much from industrial hip-hop and gabber music as post-punk and no-wave, the track features instrumentals made from the warped images and sounds of a private jet commercial.
Taking influence from the climate actions led by Extinction Rebellion and the Kurdish liberation movements in northern Syria, as well as the work of sci-fi writer William Gibson and solarpunk literature, the single's banal and oftentimes surreal lyrics use dark humor to both stare at the abyss and find in it a flashlight to chase away the bats.
Perhaps the most compelling aspect of N I T E F I S H is his live performances which marry mosh-pit fervour with art-gallery charm. Accompanied by a projector that paints his performance space with grotesque and psychedelic imagery, he delivers a wholly mesmerizing show. That being said, don't miss his next gig at Drop Dead Twice on the 17th of November. All the details are here.
