Boston rockers NEST make their debut with an eclectic collection of stripped back rock songs infused with unsettling, jangly riffs and surfy, raw indie pop vocals that add a stroke of comfort.

NEST’s sound is mature: there’s an awareness of what works and doesn’t work in indie pop and rock, and they take all the best elements to form their sound. While mature, N*E*S*T drips with fun and embraces youthful angst. In “Lipstick,” vocalist Katie Coriander wallows “All my life’s choices have been a mistake…everything I’ve ever done was a mistake,” while leading a spelling game over a saturated and sweet chorus. The overall effect NEST has is refreshing, but tastefully familiar—a winning combo.

Catch NEST in action at Herter Park on June 8 with Bad History Month, Giving Up, and Ragu.
