_N8NOFACE — articulating the voice of the forgotten, living in the real-life dystopia of today (through the look and feel of a futuristic underground LA)._
A fixture in the underground scene for some time now, whose aesthetic has resonated with younger artists such as H09909 — which collaborated on the track “Punk Police (unknown virus 5.)” off the latter’s 2018 ‘Cyber Cop’ EP, Los Angeles’ N8NOFACEreturns with the 20-track LP BOUND TO LET YOU DOWN on January 8 via Eyeball Records, the label that first introduced you to Thursday, The Casualties, Murder By Deathand others.
N8 says, “Bound to Let You Down is a collection of songs written, produced and performed by me. This record was inspired by break-ups, addiction and life lived outside the lines of the law. I’m excited to release this project through a label like Eyeball.”
While N8NOFACE’s influences range from Suicidal Tendencies to Stones Throw compilations of minimal wave music, the sounds of BOUND TO LET YOU DOWN are a dirty melding of 80s/90s nostalgic synthpunk combined with the amalgamation of chaos heard in grimy Soundcloud rap tapes. This collection of 1-2 minute minimalist distorted dark synth movements and raw acoustic micro rage-ballads, challenges every listener to accept what the real world sounds like, and dares the complacent to be shocked out of their musical safety net of never-ending sameness.
On “Bound To Let you Down”, N8NOFACE assembles a collection of songs, sounds and lyrics deriving from the ongoing stories built through the lens of continued new realities. The generations of individuals getting left behind or ignored. An evolving glimpse telling the hard truth of police brutality, mental health, and the untold stories of the voiceless.
