ETT - 029 - Nancy - (Get The) REVVUP 7"
BUY YELLOW Version ( LIMITED 150 ): HERE
BUY BLUE VERSION: ( LIMITED 350 ): HERE
If you’re looking for a good time, NANCY is your salvation. These New York punk prophets have that uncanny ability to craft songs like desert-born incantations: packed with scorching hot riffs so catchy that they’ll possess you to do unspeakable things (or at least dance a lot).
With simply two songs, this 7" will get the party going at your pad. A lot of people have compared them to the RAMONES which is lazy, but also totally true. Both nancy boys contribute their great voices to the microphone, so get ready for ultimate melody.
This debut 7" is soaked in sticky-sweet vocals, galloping stints of foot-stomping beats, and those irresistible, glistening punk rawk hooks. Now I know what you’re thinking: “hooks” means “trite”. WRONG – check out those loopy, gnarly key changes in the middle of the title track. And that’s really the best thing about this no-bullshit crew: the tunes are familiar enough to get you raucous and weird enough to keep you interested. “(Why Am I) Crying?” has all that in spades. Twistable grooves? Check. Ear-searing guitar tone? Of course. Croon factor? A resounding 10.
If you've been looking for a new song to hum at your shit job, it'll take no time to get hooked on these kickers. There’s no excuse for ignoring this band.

Not hyped enough? Daniel from Sorry State record says:
Debut single from this NYC band who had a killer demo a while back. The only bad thing I can say about this record is that it's almost painfully short... Nancy sound like a slightly poppier version of the Spits... the guitars are big, simple, and Ramones-influenced, and the vocals have the kind of nasal sound of early Europunk bands like Lost Kids or Ivy Green. Like the Spits, they're also about concision, so only two songs leaves me really, REALLY wanting more... if you like garage-punk whose guitars have balls while the vocals satisfy your pop sweet tooth this is bound to be a favorite.
