Taking in the sounds of Gramme, Talking Heads and the 70s New York disco scene via Justice and Ed Banger records, Carpenter Brut and Todd Terje, NOPRISM make pop music. Throw in the likes of !!! and The Rapture too and you get the idea.
Latest single Pantherbeat had Radio 1‘s Jack Saunders lavishing the praise, whilst previous release Happiness gained some notable achievements, featuring on E4 show Made in Chelsea and being championed by Duran Duran’s Simon LeBon as ‘perhaps the best new song ever’. Happiness also placed the band into Spotify‘s Hot New Bands playlist.
Having some notable achievements with previous bands – including Maida Vale Radio 1 sessions and interviews for both Steve Lamacq and Zane Lowe, alongside an MTV tour with Editors and festival appearances at Reading/Leeds and Wireless Festival – NOPRISM is a new project which explores more of the disco and new wave elements of the band’s record collections.
Previous singles Pieces and House of Smith achieved over 50k and 45k Spotify streams in the first few weeks of release, gaining some great soundbites along the way, as well as spins on BBC’s Introducing shows. 5 more of NOPRISM‘s songs casually uploaded to the BBC’s platform have all been given BBC Introducing airtime, along with being playlisted by XS Manchester‘s Evening Show.
