SQUEEEE! Nell is back! It’s like my birthday and Christmas rolled into one!
I’ve made no secret of my love, no, my adoration of the band Nell. On Friday I was standing in line at the copier at Staples waiting for the lady in front of me to print, what seemed like, every page of every newspaper she’s ever read, when I pulled out my phone to kill time on Youtube. And there it was. The sneak peek teaser of a new Nell song and the news that they would be releasing the new song before the drop of their next release.
I literally squealed. Out loud. In Staples, In New York City. Yeah, I’ll never get that dignity back….
As for the song, it is, of course Nell gold. However, I am a little surprised that this is the song that the band chose to lead with–usually the first song released as a MV, is one of their more powerful tunes, with the full band full-on rocking it out. With this new (I’m not sure if it’s going to be a mini album or a full CD, but considering we just got a full CD last year, I’m guessing it’s just going to be a few songs) release, they decided to brush off the softer side of Nell and kick it off with a ballad. As Nell is one of the few bands who I like both sides of their coin, I don’t mind, I’m just hoping we have something bigger to come.
