Nuada (Melbourne, Australia) :: Label, Booking, Promo

Sludgy, heavy, hooky, Nuada is a new four-piece comprised of Melbourne rock veterans (and one new guy, but he’s sick, so it’s fine). Think a cross between Kyuss and Alice in Chains, just with a wandering attention span and a few more unpleasant noises.

The inimitable vocals of Matt ‘Chappy’ Chapman (My Left Boot) wail over the sludgy, spacey riffs of David Milner (Citizen), low-end bass backbone of Alex Brooks (Citizen), and proggy tech grooves of drumming wunderkind Daniel Morassutti.

In previous bands, members have shared the stage with Nick Oliveri (US), Earthless (US), Red Fang (US), The Shrine (US), Beastwars (NZ), HITS, Clowns, Seedy Jeezus, Fuck The Fitzroy Doom Scene, King Of The North, Batpiss, Sheriff, Dr Colossus, Horsehunter, Sun God Replica, El Colosso, Redcoats and more.

Nuada may be new, but things are happening quickly. Already they’ve played the inaugural Holy Smoke Festival (presented by Desert Highways) with Buried Feather, Aver, Zong, Turtle Skull and more, supported Child at Cherry Bar, and are on the line up for Psych Lords Festival with 1000 Mods (Greece), Child, Devil Electric, Whoopie Cat, label mates Smoke Witch, Jack Harlon & The Dead Crows and Pseudo Mind Hive. Nuada are keeping very good company already.

Their first video clip and single, ‘Kraken’, is launching soon ahead of the release of their debut album, Beneath The Swamp, which will be out through Desert Highways later this year.
