Welcome to Reaper Season.
nothing,nowhere. is on the cover of this month's Rock Sound magazine.
We are so excited about it and believe in his art, but we appreciate that you might not be too familiar with him.
So here are eight reasons why he's one of the most unique and exciting artists on the planet.
01. HE'S ONE OF THE MOST MYSTERIOUS FIGURES IN MUSIC…
…which is one way of saying, few people know that much about this Vermont-based producer and singer-songwriter: AKA Joe Mulherin. From covering his face in photos and videos to his enigmatic online profile, that’s exactly the way he's wanted it.
02. …BUT ALREADY HAS THE SUPPORT OF SCENE ROYALTY
Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz backs n,n. so hard, he’s helped to put out his music via his DCD2 label. Good Charlotte took him on tour last year. Renowned emo troubadour Chris Carrabba (Dashboard Confessional) appeared on ‘Hopes Up’. That’s not something that happens every day, or without good reason.
03. HE MIGHT JUST HAVE DELIVERED THE SOUND OF THE FUTURE
Blending elements of emo, trap, alternative pop and a whole lot more, nothing,nowhere. embraces some of the most exciting sounds in music right now. If genre is truly over, Joe looks set to lead the charge.
04. HIS LYRICS CAPTURE THE FEELING OF BEING YOUNG AND LOST
Whether it’s lost love, loneliness, anxiety or worries about what we’ll see when we look back over our lives, n,n. goes deep in his songs. Some of his stuff is incredibly dark, too. But it always comes from the heart.
05. ‘REAPER’ WAS ONLY THE START
Over its nine tracks, Joe’s debut album sketched a whole new musical map – calling to mind everyone from emo legends to the most vital new artists in alternative hip-hop. But as his recent single ‘ornament’ underlined, he’s never going to stay in one place for long. And that couldn’t be more exciting.
06. IT'S WAY MORE THAN A STUDIO PROJECT
n,n. has already toured with everyone from Real Friends and Broadside to Thrice and La Dispute, just for starters. He made his UK debut last December with Good Charlotte, Against The Current and Milk Teeth, will play some huge shows with Fall Out Boy in the summer, and there’s plenty of incredible stuff on the horizon…
07. THE N,N. AESTHETIC IS UNIQUE
Skulls, dying flowers, grainy photos… crossed with aspects of skate culture and lo-fi, VHS style videos. Yep Joe’s world looks and sounds incredible.
08. THIS IS A COMMUNITY
He may have only been making music as nothing,nowhere. for a few years, but a lot of people have already connected with Joe’s vision. Just look at how many tattoos he’s inspired, or the culture building around him online. That looks set to continue well into the future.
