Uri Geller is an English man famous for being friends with Michael Jackson. He is also a magician and the subject of a song on Nun’s first LP, which releases April 18 through Aarght. The vinyl version will release with the help of Avant. I’ve been listening to this album a fair bit lately and ‘Uri Geller’ crept up slowly. Despite the clip above and the fact that the song is named after Uri Geller, it’s probably the brightest of the bunch.
That said, it’s incorrect to describe Nun as dark, because they’re not really. It’s not sad or despairing or severe music. It’s certainly not evil either. I think Nun would be perfect music for a very serious party. For more on where Nun is coming from, check out this interview we did with singer Jenny Branagan back in 2012.
A full opinion piece re: this album is forthcoming, but in the meantime you should watch this clip several times and enjoy.
The group is launching the record April 19 in Melbourne at the John Curtin Hotel with Repairs, Soma Coma, Flat Fix and Freejack. A Sydney launch is happening April 26 with Four Door, Housewives and Orion in support.
