Gone 04:29
You’re a piece of shit and I can’t believe it In the time it takes to know you I’m already lost It’s stand against my infuriation. I know Because I’m right when I’m wrong and I’m wrong when I’m right My prerogative to shout and scream Might fall on deafened ears Not a chance I’m in that abstract class Bearing insecurities, oh Last chance to take it back I want it back Last time to see this place I wanna know my place Last call to Las Vegas Boulevard (Oh) Lest I am gone You’re a piece of shit and you’re fooling no one One minute you’re here and the next you’re gone You got a tendency to tell me lies, I know Because I’m right when I’m wrong and I’m wrong when I’m right What propaganda can they throw at me Might just fall on deafened ears What you see ain’t a mirage of me Bearing insecurities Last chance to take it back I want it back Last time to see this place I wanna know my place Last call to Las Vegas Boulevard (Oh) Lest I am gone Mm We’re illusive renegades And we bribe our lives until the everglades are a Niche for whichever one remains aloof Cycling the retrograde And the tattered ropes that broke from someone’s weight Is a calling a wanting for love (But you’re a piece of shit and I can’t believe it) Last chance to take it back I want it back Last time to see this place I wanna know my place Last call to Las Vegas Boulevard (Oh) Lest I am gone Last chance to take it back I want it back Last time to see this place I wanna know my place Last call to Las Vegas Boulevard (Oh) Lest I am gone

Sadie 03:43
Sadie wants what she wants. Sadie goes where she goes. Sadie does what she needs. And I don’t even care about her. Sadie calls who she wants. Sadie leaves. She just goes. Sadie chose to forget. And I don’t even care about her. Sadie plays by her rules. Sadie’s always so cool. Sadie knows what I want. But I don't even care about her. Sadie meets with her friends. Sadie’s got the moxy. Sadie never forgets. But I don't even care about her. Once in awhile, It's a spark of the eye; flick of the wrist. Twice a look back, It's a shot in the gut; stuck in a rut. But I wasn't ready. Sadie’s a sadist. I love the way she makes me feel. I can’t explain. I love it when I’m shaking. I think I like the pain. I love it in her voice. I somehow come alive. I love the lonely nights. I think I like the game. You will state your sins and confess to the rebellion against no one’s will, Watching the suffering of the universe at the palms of your hands. When your elements break laws rip with judgemental flaws. Sadie, you’re a sadist, and you pleasure yourself with human suffering. Pray. Sadie's got it all down. Sadie makes her own cash. Sadie likes to get drunk. But I don't even care about her. Sadie likes to go out. Sadie's figured it out. Sadie struts like a fox. But I don't even care about her.

Follow Me 06:08
Heaven followed me She must have followed me I'm on this road of regret and remorse but I've got her company Heaven followed me He must have followed me When the time has come and gone He leaves a prayer for me Been taught how to love hate Accepting dictating not answering All the questions I had Miseducated me I slept with knives I slept with knives under my head Hoping soundly I would leave Someday But who are you standing behind me Tell me again how the tide of the magnet moon Pulls at my strength And follow me Heaven follow me You've gotta follow me Broken innocent listless but heartless Nothing but fear I breathe Been taught how to love hate Accepting dictating not answering All the questions I had Miseducated me I slept with knives I slept with knives under my head Hoping soundly I would leave Someday But who are you standing behind me Tell me again how the tide of the magnet moon Pulls at my strength And follow me Pretty little words set free. I slept with knives I slept with knives under my head Hoping soundly I would leave Someday I slept with knives I slept with knives under my head Hoping soundly I would leave I slept with knives I slept with knives under my head Hoping soundly I would leave I slept with knives I slept with knives under my head Hoping soundly I would leave Someday But who are you standing behind me Tell me again how the tide of the magnet moon Pulls at my strength And follow me

about

Energetic alternative rock on a foundation of punk, hard rock and metal with multi-genre references.

The alternative rock band, Nihil Admirari releases their first EP, "New EP" following the soft release of their first single "Not Enough" in November 2016.

Just a trio of studied and practiced musicians from three parts of the world (US, Japan and The Bahamas), Nihil Admirari found each other in NYC after a long-time search for like-minded artists. That is, they wanted people with big dreams, the work ethic to back it, the strength to stomach the coming hardships, the stubbornness to always push for creativity and a quirky personality to survive it all together. Because, like their Latin namesake - Nihil Admirari, one should never expect predictability but always believe in the many perspectives and emotional stimuli of life and the music they make.

"New EP" was named so like an announcement of strangers. They consider themselves unknown but still an entity with something to say. As if to answer the call for anything modern and a bit different, the group drops this very literal opening statement to the highly metaphorical and impressionistic content. Thus, the contrast of graphic artist Naoya Esa's surrealistic dépaysement superimposed on simple white, gives way to the four tracks which all somehow reference a type of homesickness or loneliness that isn't always so visible. Within one track, the listener can experience the excitement of dancing at a party, thrashing about their frustration or just saying "I am here" all at once. It's all their choice.

The band's opus is objectivity. They bring light to multiple sides of something otherwise seen as simple, and each element of a song has an open interpretation for a personal response. Gone is both about leaving something or someone and not wanting to leave. Sadie talks about the pain and pleasure of obsession and all its dark veil. Mr. Wizard asks you what gets you in the party mood and why. And Follow Me walks you beside someone discovering something that was always there. The safety of home, the restlessness of home, the comfort of home and the little things.

This EP was written and produced by the trio working together at all fronts; three voices, three instruments, many thoughts.

Expect theatrical vocals and song structure, bodied guitar and versatile drums and percussion in a generally upbeat and exciting mix.
