Nomo is like Holy Fuck VS. Toubab Krewe, which might not mean much unless you’re a Pitchfork regular, or a friend of ours for a long time.

Holy Fuck is a Casio modding indie rock group that pulls tweaked synth sounds from assorted and distorted electronics. Toubab Krewe is an Afro influenced rock group of Asheville NC which leans toward more traditional West African music… in the middle lies Nomo.

The band harps melodic horns and distorted keys, the thumb piano and drums of African descent, and the sound of a summer rooftop friendly album that pairs perfectly with some sangria and chaise lounge. Their new album out on Ubiquity made us open the office door and kick up our feet by the 2nd track.

Nomo hits New York City July 11, 12 & 13th.
