"Three guitarists, one drummer, and nothing to fret about: NI are out there to save the universe, their exorbitant rock drone doing the hula hoop with templates, their outer -space free jazz swarming with noise-shaped JS Bach on natural steroids. Everything's there, and everything's there is shit hot.
Boasting members of such risky ventures as Tumido, Fang den Berg and Braaz, NI released their debut album in 2010 on Zach Records. As a direct consequence of the quartet toured half the Continent, leaving it in a state of unadulterated exultation. May and June 2012 saw NI on another outing, regaling Central, Northern and Eastern Europe with their next offering: the follow-up, “Foxtrott”, was released on Interstellar Records as a very pink vinyl LP in a very green sleeve. The LP's design smartly reflects the style and color update of their stage kit: gone is the surreal astro-chic of yesteryear, their screamingly dazzling costumes now ushering in a neo (n) era of all senses transmogrified. And still the music is free from inhibitions yet complex; still it is as delightfully delicate as a damsel in distress, yet as brawny as a Bavarian barmaid. A second helping of brains washed down with Zweigelt, insanity on the highest of all possible levels. NI-ce.
Three guitars, one drum kit and nothing to worry about. NI save the universe. With an exorbitant skirt that uses stencils as hoola hoops. With free jazz from outer space, contoured noise and Johann Sebastian Bach on the body's own substances. With everything and hot.
The NI workforce includes members of daring formations such as Tumido, Fang den Berg, and Braaz. In 2010 the quartet released their debut album on Zach Records. As a result, they played half the continent and left great enthusiasm everywhere. In May and June 2012 NI were on the road to present a freshly squeezed piece of work in Central, Northern and Eastern Europe. The second album "Foxtrott" was released on Interstellar Records. As bright pink vinyl in a bright green cover. The artwork of the record was coordinated with the stage outfits in terms of style and color. The surreal astronaut look of the early days has given way to shrill neon costumes. A feast for all the senses. And again the music is uninhibited and complex, filigree and powerful at the same time. Again it's raw brains with a bouquet of flowers. Madness at the highest level. NI? Always.
