NOTS have announced details of the release of their second album. Cosmetic is released on Heavenly Recordings on Friday 9th September, and the band have shared new single, ‘Entertain Me(below). Lead vocalist / guitarist Natalie Hoffman says of the track:

““Entertain Me” is a song in a constant state of movement and deterioration around one central, repeating part. No two live versions of it sound the same. Drawing influences from experimental no wave, postpunk, and psychedelic music, “Entertain Me” takes its cues from the edges of genres, where one begins to blend into another, and nothing is easily classified. The lyrics reflect the cyclical, distorted nature of the song, addressing different facets of the grotesque horror show going on in American politics and how they are portrayed- the rise of Trump, the reality-TV-like nature of American news, the almost-forced compliance of the viewer, and the for-profit-constructed “right” of the viewer, the consumer, to require constant entertainment in order to participate, and to live.”

Recorded with Keith Cooper and Andrew McCalla in the band’s home-town of Memphis, the album also features artwork by Hoffman.

NOTS are: Natalie Hoffman (guitar / vocals), Charlotte Watson (drums), Meredith Lones (bass) & Alexandra Eastburn (synthesizer).
