Prepare yourself for something rather unique…the atmospheric, psych-rock sounds of the Pacific Northwest’s own, Nails Hide Metal.
Russ Quinn (guitars, bass, keyboards, vocals), and MeLinda Dalton (drums, percussion, keys, harmonica, vocals), began writing, playing and recording together in 2009, and thus the unique sounds of NHM was born.
Since that moment, the two have been busy. When they’re not touring throughout the US and Canada, they’re in the studio where inspiration is never elusive.
Previous projects include: 2011’s Where Are We Now, 2010’s Ghost, 2012/2013’s Blood and Makeup, 2013’s What’s Left, and 2015’s Outside City.
Their latest album, 2017’s Breach, contains the lead-off single, All Through, a satisfying alt-rock number that is both gruffly textured and ambiently smooth—all at once.
Quinn’s silky, near spoken-word vocals are authentically minimalist, and sparkle when Dalton chimes in. Musically, guitars boast etheric tones atop layers of distortion, making the composition, at its least an—intriguing listen, and at its most—borderline brilliant. Be sure and check out the rest of their library where the NHM coolness continues.
The Doors meets 90’s era Smashing Pumpkins, with a twist of The B-52’s and The White Stripes…
