Montreal, QC

Nennen is a slow burn, unflinching, toeing the line between total control and a complete unraveling. Amy Macdonald, the primary force behind Nennen, cut her teeth playing in Edmonton post-hardcore band Gyre Spire and Spindle and has continued blowing out eardrums in the Montreal bands Mands and Five Eyes. With contributors including Matt May (Ought) and Joni Sadler (Lungbutter), Nennen takes the ferocity of these projects and attacks from a different angle, juxtaposing sparse, repetitive tones with layers of unexpected melody.
