After releasing their single ‘Kraken’ and its accompanying film clip through HEAVY this week, Melbourne’s Nuada now cast their gaze forward to debut album Beneath The Swamp, which is due for release later this year.
With only that one song thus far on which the band can be musically judged, guitarist David Milner concedes that although ‘Kraken’ is a good initiation to Nuada, it by no means encapsulates the full spectrum of sound that this talented quartet cover.
“I think it is (a pretty good representation)”, Milner measured. “Every song on the record sounds quite different but this song does have a lot of what we are trying to do. It’s got that slow stoner rock groove; it’s got this thrash metal outro section; it’s got really messed up guitar solo and catchy vocals so I think it has a lot of it. We’ve got a lot of weird stuff on the record (laughs). There’s ten-minute long trippy stoner songs, there’s short almost bluesy tunes, there’s some messed up prog metal… I think it doesn’t get all of it but it is a pretty good introduction to what we are trying to do with this band”.
In the full interview, David discusses the single and film clip, introduces Nuada and its members, reveals what they are trying to achieve musically, clarifies their sound and influences on Beneath the Swamp, discusses current tours and more.
