My wife has been telling me recently that the ’90s are having a revival. I could see hints of what she was saying going back to when I first heard Better Off a few years ago, but I didn’t really think about it back then.
Well today I got another glimpse of what she means. While Nothing may not be a direct throwback to the glory days of band like The Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Dig and Glisten, they definitely call forth the sentiment of that style. I’m not a super-nostalgic person, yet I can’t help but get a bit of a smile across my face when I hear something that so clearly evokes the music I grew up listening to.
For your review, I present “Vertigo Flowers” by Nothing.
