[STREAM] Nomen Novum – “Briar Hills”

The collision of caffeinated loops, bright guitar lines, and oddball lyrics produces some truly singular moments on If You Look For It, It’s There, the latest full length from local pop alchemist Nomen Novum. The songs are incredibly detailed, built brick by brick with sampled snatches of sound that add up to a shiny, dizzying whole. It always feels like there are thousands of gears spinning below the surface. Just listen to “Briar Hills,” which begins as something like idyllic glitch-folk before slowly melting into ambient sound collage in the final two minutes. Constantly shifting, always engaging.
