THE DOME

by NUN

Feature Records for the week beginning Mon 5 Nov 2018

Formed in late 2011, Nun started life as a recording project for members Jenny Branagan, Tom Hardisty (Woollen Kits), Steven Harris and Hugh Young (Constant Mongrel / Hamhock).

Their new LP THE DOME opens with a track named ‘Wake In Fright’, and presents a conceptual framework inspired by R. Buckminster Fuller that arms the record with a cohesive horror.

On THE DOME, Nun’s development echoes the first wave of post-punk and Industrial music, from the malevolent broken electronics of Throbbing Gristle to the sensual trance of Chris and Cosey, or Human League’s journey from the turgid grind of ‘Being Boiled’ to the giddy synth-pop of DARE. An example: in contrast to the early recordings in which Branagan’s vocals were a heavily affected cyborg wail, the vocals on THE DOME have an immediacy and clarity.

THE DOME is radiant electronic music accompanying such images of psychological horror as relating to the immersive experience of desire. IMMERSION.

Listen to the third single 'Turning Out' now.
