The Nursery is a post-modern pop foursome from Canada who weave dreamwave atmospheres into wild eyed danceable songs. After releasing an EP in 2013, the band set out to push their sound to bolder, darker and more vulnerable places. Their debut full length, Life After Wartime, is due out this summer.
Alex Pulec (vocals, guitar) spent the years of his youth making sounds on a 2-track cassette tape deck that belonged to the family that was used as a home karaoke machine. Equipped with only one microphone, Alex gradually gathered more and more instruments and churned out one experimental recording after another. Some were good, some were awful and most were just noise. The isolated process led to eclectic creations spanning from distorted, voice only pieces to freakish, fake TV show themes.
Victor Ess (bass, synth) had his roots in experimental electronic music, often made with wacky homemade contraptions and noise makers. He met Alex and started making a prolific amount of music inspired by a steady diet of early 80’s electro and late 70’s post punk records. In 2014, Alex and Vic began writing songs as The Nursery after teaming up with keyboard and synth player Jared Roth and drummer Josh English from New York.
For an era obsessed with youth, we all sure love poisoning ourselves. Whether you're being born, or just about to die, we’re transitioned in and out of existence though the Nursery.
