Nectar are a pop-punk band from Illinois. Pop-punk, sugar-punk – listening to this I hear real 90’s grunge chords, minor key progressions, very cool. And a very early Britpop/Riot Grrrl vocal which reminds me a bit of Lush. It’s a nice mix of distortion and melody. Right up my street to be honest.
‘Birthday’ is the closing track on the band’s debut album Knocking at the Door which came out last year. It’s a very decent record if you’re minded to check it out. It’s on Infinity Cat Records too which is a label I seem to be seeing more and more of all the time. Lots of great indie bands doing really cool stuff over there, of which Nectar just seem to be the latest.
