All of these matters are perpetuated by the backdrop of futile modern distractions and disheartening comparisons drawn through the illusions of social media. Fuelled by existential anxiety, and a proclivity for the ‘live fast, die young’ ethos, Bad Nerves have served up another exciting slice of punk rock. The bastard child of a Ramones/Strokes a one-night stand that play ferociously fast distorted pop songs, packed with earworm hooks and melodies. This hi-octane debut explores familiar human experiences filtered through a nihilistic lens, touching upon the anxieties of lost youth, in the never-ending pursuit of self-improvement and the justification of existence. Bobby added: “‘ELECTRIC 88’ is about having a good time whilst you can, cause the world is fucked up and the clock is ticking. Unless I die young I guess… But that reality coupled with finding it extremely hard to breath most of the time is kind of what kick-started the theme of this song.”

Bad Nerves have revealed their lo-fi video for single ‘Electric 88’. “I still can’t imagine looking in the mirror and being an old man, but obviously, I know it’s a certainty. Directed and produced by the band’s very own Bobby Nerves, the track taken from their highly anticipated self-titled debut album, set for release October 23rd via Killing Moon Records. The track was also picked by Modern Age Music for its Song of the Day segment last month.
