Shock of the New: Nolita View
Ben Ryman gives us the low down on some driving rock'n'indie
YOU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD OF:
Nolita View from Battersea.
IN A NUTSHELL, THEY'RE A BIT LIKE:
Talking Heads playing table tennis against the Killers for Kanye West's girlfriend.
FROM WHAT WE CAN TELL:
They are four old friends who grew up on the streets of Harlem selling drugs for money to make rap music who then decided to give the London indie-pop scene a go. Nolita View found their name in the lines of The National track 'Driver, Surprise Me'. Documenting the journey of a passenger who as a result of craving a fresh start steps into a car and requests that the destination be chosen at random, Nolita is a slow moving landscape recognised through the car window, leading to a passenger-seat transformation; I'm brand new and reinvented. Without a scratch, daisy fresh and arrow straight..."
IT'S ONLY A FIRST DATE, BUT WE'RE THINKING:
They're going to hit a home run!
