NULLA – “Sunyata”

Released today, “Sunyata” is a hypnotic rocker from Liverpool act NULLA. They refer to their stylistic output as “Juicy Junk” — a “sound that encapsulates Jodorowsky, Lao Tzu, the internet.” Specifically, the group infuses psychedelic rock, jazz, and funk into a sound brimming with easy-flowing melodies and bustling rhythms. Their live performances incorporates expressive stage-wear alongside this consuming, fairly nostalgic sound. “Sunyata” is a debut single that arrives after a year of live gigs and resulting acclaim, serving as a solid success. I’m particularly fond of the guitar burst at 01:31, which is excellently produced and nostalgic in a way that reminds me of ’90s Brit-rock. “Sunyata” is an extremely promising debut.
