New NOKIES!: “Take My Hand”


Just the other day I wrote about fidgety rockers NOKIES! around these parts. I take one day off from the job and what happens? Another song from NOKIES!’ forthcoming 7 Songs EP makes its way online. “Take My Hand” actually swerves a bit away from how I described the group in that last post – whereas the songs I highlighted last week channeled the same madness Los Campesinos! summon, this new track stays relatively in line. It sometimes nears chaos, but even the great chorus…shouts of “I just want to dance with you” breaking over the guitars…feels like controlled demolition, “Take My Hand” never giving into passion completely. Good song though, one that should make the February 16 release of their new EP something to get excited about.
