Announces Debut Album & Shares Lead Track ‘I Hate Rock & Roll’


Bizarro-pop provocateur NANCY announces the forthcoming arrival of his debut LP, alongside rollicking lead single ‘I Hate Rock & Roll’, set for release June 30th via Blame Recordings.

Raised in conservative north east England, NANCY acted in ways that seemed out-of-the-ordinary – combined with abnormal physical features, “Nancy” was both a punchline & label throughout the songwriter’s formative years.

Beginning as a DIY form of escapism, a pop music obsession began. It’s these past lives and vivid influences that are reimagined and regurgitated to create a cocktail of lo-fo cabaret sass contorted with art-dream-pop deformities – an invitation to a fantasy world to get lost in.

Following on from 2021’s acclaimed mini-LP ‘7 Foot Tall Post-Suicidal Feel Good Blues’, NANCY’s unique brand of warped psychedelia has captured the imagination of countless key indie press champions (Pitchfork, Stereogum, NME, DIY, Dork, The Line Of Best Fit, So Young, Gigwise, Paste), as well asattracting multiple spins on the BBC Radio 1 (Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, Jack Saunders)BBC 6 Music (Iggy Pop, Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq), Beats 1, KCRW KEXP airwaves,

“Rock and Roll. My first true love”NANCY explains. “It’s glamorous, decadent and ridiculous. Since I was 14 noodling in my bedroom, Rock and Roll has been everything I’ve ever wanted. I’ve been in love with Rock and Roll; I’ve dedicated my life to it. But now Rock and Roll has become a ball and chain. It’s a cage of ambition I’ve built around myself; it’s a golden carrot that I stagger towards, an oasis of aspiration in a desert of economic despair. So naturally, I wrote a song about it..I Hate Rock n Roll.”

Nancy hooks you immediately with the raw and raucous delivery of “I Hate Rock and Roll”. This massive soundscape delivers this impresive wall of sound and exudes fuzz-fused riffs, aggressive notes, bold percussive beats, and the highest intense crescendo. Nancy has this fearless commitment to the explosive release, and that fearlessness adds to the addictive qualities on offer throughout.

With the musical auteur set to reveal a full live plot for the autumn to coincide with the release of his debut record, NANCY’s formidable momentum is only set to accelerate further in the months to come.
