Bored Nothing // Bored Nothing III
It’s totally cool if you want to emulate older styles and trends. Heck you can even ape another artist’s vibe and I’d be fine with it. People do it all the time. You just gotta find a way to make it your own, put your stamp on it somehow. So many bands now lifelessly go through the motions without heart and earn best new whatevers while doing so. So frustrating!
Anyways, I think you’ll agree that Melbourne band Bored Nothing are not really anything new, and yet the band still finds a way to stand out. Their gentle take on fuzzy post-punk is pretty meek in its execution and it is definitely more mature than what the somewhat childish cover artwork would suggest. I think the band’s major strength is that they are more than the some of their parts. Simple guitar lines trace back and forth while the feathery, almost whispered vocal scrawl a melancholy picture. And while these elements are relatively unassuming on their own they add up to something pretty great. When it comes down to it, I enjoy this band because I feel something when I listen to it. Doesn’t get any simpler than that.
