Sounds of SXSW 2015 #6: Nuns

It's getting to be that time of year again, y'all. That time in March when spring is tantalizingly close, and when bands from just about every corner of the earth (and the music press who loves them) gathers in Austin for SXSW. I know some folks think it's just a big industry schmooze-fest, but I still get a thrill out of checking out the (massive) list of bands and finding someone new to fall in smit with. The bands I'm profiling this year are bands that I would definitely seek out were I going to SXSW this year. If you're going to Austin, or even if you're not, give them a listen.

I'm not sure what it is about Nuns, but something about the Tulsa outfit makes me think of Tame Impala. And that, friends, is quite a good thing. The noise of Nuns comes across as complex and palatial, and it pulsates with a kaleidoscopic kick that's so very pleasurable (and just a smidge out there). My interest has been well and truly piqued.
