My Next Big Thing: Wet Nuns

Wet Nuns. You may be thinking to yourself 'who are they?' well continue reading, because the northern duo are the band whose name will soon be gracing everybody's lips. Described on their twitter profile as "Undead Blues-Stoner-Punk duo from Yorkshire. On an inverted crusade of rock". It's not difficult to see why (Arctic Monkeys drummer) Matt Helders has kept a close eye on them. His fellow band member (and best mate) Alex Turner may have tipped Alabama Shakes as the next great thing, he's not wrong either. It's just there's something special that Wet Nuns have created - something we don't see so much of anymore.

Their track Heavens Below has heavy metal elements thrown in with rock, they're a band that fall halfway between Metallica and Biffy Clyro. Definitely not for the faint hearted, another of the band's singles Throttle has a video unlike others you may stumble across. With plenty of blood and gore it's best suited to those who are mature, however if the children are hardcore enough - let them at it. Wet Nuns produce tracks that scratch at your soul in an effort to be remembered. That's not a bad thing, and what's more impressive is that actually you do remember them.  

Exclusively for Record Day 2012, back in April Wet Nuns released a limited edition 7" vinyl. If you'd like to hear tracks from this record played live, you can catch them at gigs across the country.
