Nectar, High Meadows, Nic Gundy Band + 1 TBA 1/26
January 26, 2020 06:30 PM
Nectar (Champaign, IL) - Pop Punk, Indie Rock, Power Pop
Initially the side project of Kamila Glowacki, Nectar began with a four-track, self-titled cassette. A prolific musician and artist in the Champaign-Urbana, Illinois DIY scene, Glowacki started Nectar as an outlet to write songs that didn’t quite fit her punk-leaning bands. That first cassette, designed by Glowacki, looks exactly how Nectar sounds: on the cover, a small, hand-drawn house burns, adorned with bright pink and green hues - a perfect depiction of the sadness that underlies Glowacki’s sweet, upbeat melodies and guitar riffs.
Two tapes and a split 7” later, Nectar will release their debut full-length album, Knocking at the Door, on April 20th with Infinity Cat Recordings. No longer a solo endeavor, vocalist/guitarist Glowacki is now joined in Nectar by guitarist Aaron Shults, bassist Isabel Skidmore, and drummer Jake Mott. Knocking at the Door was recorded over the course of two days in the home studio of Luke McNeill (of Hospital Job and The Copyrights) and stays true to the project’s catchy beginnings and DIY roots.
With a sound that harkens back to the likes of Cub, Blake Babies, and Tiger Trap, Nectar confront loneliness and sadness head-on over the course of Knocking’s ten tracks, armed with bouncy guitar riffs, charming lyrics, and catchy melodies as simple and sweet as the band’s name.
