"If you don’t enjoy ‘Guilty Of Everything’, there’s nothing left for us to offer you."
The Holy Grail for any band is to create a sound that both defines you, but in itself is indefinable. For Philadelphia-based Nothing, they’ve pretty much nailed it on their first attempt. ‘Guilty Of Everything’ is a swirling, 40-minute blast of emotion, fuzzy guitars, ethereal vocals that along the way soak up elements of ’90s shoegaze and alt-rock like My Bloody Valentine and Smashing Pumpkins, but stays current by also giving nods to the post-Brand New indie rock sound. Individually, tracks like ‘Hymn To The Pillory’ and ‘Somersault’ aren’t particularly staggering, but as a whole body of work it really is something else. If you don’t enjoy ‘Guilty Of Everything’, there’s nothing left for us to offer you.
