NØMADS have released their fiery new single “Traumatophobia” via SoundCloud – listen above. This is their first new output since their 2014 debut album Free My Animal. NØMADS is a maximum sound duo, forged and incubated in a small rehearsal room in Brooklyn. NØMADS harkens back to the razor-efficient songwriting forms of ’90s bands like Nirvana, Fugazi, and Girls Against Boys, while updating the style and stripping the approach to its essential foundations of lyricism and sonic intensity.

NØMADS is a primal sound that capitalizes on conspicuous juxtapositions: minimal instrumentation against maximum sound, aggression against beauty, soft melody versus an aggression of expression. Their debut full-length Free My Animal came out in April 2014, and was an album about liberation, belief, and being alive, incorporating elements of bands like Death From Above 1979 and Queens of the Stone Age.
