Subpop band No Age will release debut full-length Nouns on May 6th, but you can check out single “Eraser” now here! It’s an energetic tune with a beautiful and melodic instrumental intro that launches into a driving, garage rock song with catchy riffs and scratchy vocals from Dean Spunt (vocals/drums) and Randy Randall (guitar).
The L.A.-based duo embraces minimalism and aims to inspire audiences with neither affectation nor cynicism. “The music is an invitation and rallying call for individuals to get involved in a community which celebrates art and experimentation,” Randy explains. “It’s DIY on a different scale, an attempt to reacquaint people with the notion that art is a crucial part of everyday life. No Age is more than a band to us,” he continues. “It is an umbrella.” Under the No Age umbrella, Spunt and Randall curate art shows, design shirts, hats, bandanas, etc., and make videos and ‘zines.
No Age prefers to perform in unique venues: the LA River Basin, a public library, book stores, an Ethiopian restaurant, all to foster new ways to experience live music outside of traditional bar/club settings. The pair will be performing live throughout the world next month. Be sure to catch a set if they’re coming near you, and expect big things to come from No Age.
