Nice As Fuck – “Door”
The new Jenny Lewis/Erika Forster/Tennessee Thomas project Nice As Fuck seems to be operating in the shadows, away from the usual promotional circus. The band’s first show was a Bernie Sanders benefit with no advance notice, and although we’ve seen some live performance footage, they did not alert the press when they released their first song this week — unless a tweet from Father John Misty’s news-making Twitter account qualifies a press release. Anyway, Nice As Fuck did indeed release their very first single this week. It’s called “Door,” and it’s the most Rilo Kiley-sounding thing Lewis has recorded in a long while, a melodious post-punk track with a soaring shout-along chorus. Listen below.
