- Event Details
Nü Sensae is a Vancouver, BC punk and hardcore duo comprised of bassist-vocalist Andrea Lukic and drummer Daniel Pitout. Fueled by strong DIY ethos, the band began in 2008 by playing shows at the city's (then) main underground venue, The Emergency Room. Later that year, Nu Sensae recorded its first tune, "Self-Titled," as a one sided 12" and co-released via a partnership with the Isolated Now Waves label. The band has since recorded and released an LP, as well as an assortment of tracks for singles and compilations. In 2010, Nu Sensae released their critically acclaimed debut LP, TV, Death And The Devil via Nominal Records, which made Canadian music monthly Exclaim's Top 10 punk albums of the year.
Nü Sensae's recordings capture the band in its most primal form, and can act as a testament to its ferocious live sound. However make no mistake, the live show is not to be missed -- as videos on You Tube can attest: Lukic is a subtle and focused performer, with a voice that goes from a guttural howl to high pitched screams that can peel the paint off of walls; Meanwhile drummer Pitout is the perfect counterpoint, hammering out propulsive rhythms and frenzied fills with his manically flailing arms.
Nü Sensae recently released a disturbing video for TV, Death And The Devil track "I'm a Body," which stars both Lukic and Pitout, showcases their twisted sense of humor. Additionally, the band also released Tea Swamp Park, a 3-song single for Fast Weapons, a Portland, OR based label run by Nathan Howdeshell of the Gossip. The band also run a monthly fanclub mailing list where they send zines, buttons and other stuff to over 500 members in 9 different countries - free of charge.
Nü Sensae will begin work on its 2012 Suicide Squeeze debut, this fall.
