Another addition to the long list of amazing bands coming out of Canada lately; Vancouver’s own Nü Sensae recently stopped by West Germany to play a packed show and didn’t disappoint. Entering the derelict-looking venue, I noticed the place had already pulled in a pretty full crowd. This wasn’t that surprising due to all the great press the band has gotten in the past year. SPIN magazine named them as one of their ‘Top Five New Artists of 2012’, Pitchfork rated their album Sundowning 8.0/10, plus they have recently embarked on a world tour, playing everywhere from SXSW to London. If you haven’t heard of them before, they’re a punk/grunge trio who’s music isn’t for the faint of heart. While listening to Sundowning I probably felt like the most badass person alive. The mixture of schreeching vocals, heavy drums and steady guitar is the perfect combination. The show was intense and sweaty, and the intimate venue showcased the bands natural talent.
