Already one of the year’s most anticipated releases, Elizabeth Colour Wheel‘s debut album Nocebo is a masterclass in both aggression and reflection. Backed by San Fransisco-based label The Flenser, the experimental five-piece is poised to dominate 2019 with its thunderous blend of shoegaze, metal, and noise rock. After listening to album opener “Pink Palm,” that prediction becomes clear.
Stream “Pink Palm,” the blistering opener to Elizabeth Colour Wheel’s debut album, alongside a new interview via The405.
Named after “a detrimental effect on health produced by psychological or psychosomatic factors such as negative expectations of treatment or prognosis,” Nocebo is inspired by modern-day anxieties and tensities that plague us all. Mixed and mastered by Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets (The Body, Street Sects), Nocebo is an aural house of horrors, granting shelter to frequencies of spectral anger, echo and resound.
Formed in 2014, Elizabeth Colour Wheel united as a vehicle for the members to explore new volumes and depths of their craft. Since their inception, Elizabeth Colour Wheel have shared the stage with numerous bands including Have A Nice Life, Planning For Burial, True Widow and Cloakroom.
Elizabeth Colour Wheel will be hitting the road this March in support of Nocebo. Album preorders are available now via The Flenser. More news coming soon.
