Help Yourself Records
Taking just a one year break between releases, Seattle trio Nail Polish returns with yet another fiery blast of post-punk, no wave fierceness on its second mini-album, Authentic Living. Picking up close to wear they left off on its debut, Abrupt, Nail Polish wastes no time returning to its dark, jarring, pulsating, percussive sound; striking hard right out of the gate and never relenting. Though the foundation of the band’s sound remains the same on this release, there is a noticeable lean towards the grittier, rawer elements of Nail Polish’s style in this particular release. All in all, another stellar release for this band.
