Artist: WEIRD NIGHTMARE
Who: Solo moniker of the main man of
Canadian noise-bulldozer Metz (one of my
fav bands of the past 10 years)

Debut album: WEIRD NIGHTMARE.
Self-titled full lenght out May 20 via Sub Pop.

Debut single: SEARCHING FOR YOU

Edkins: “It’s a fun, no nonsense rock ‘n’ roll song. It’s about searching for meaning and inspiration all around us. In my mind, the “you” in the chorus refers to something bigger
than companionship or love; it’s that intangible thing we all look for but never find.”

Searching For You is a riff-rolling ripper sounding like rockabilly on skates. It’s a straightforward steamer ringing like Bob Mould‘s guitar ruckus to my excited ears.
I’m quite sure Edkins wrote this cracker while having an electrical nightmare.

I want more.
