Stream Nuvolascura’s New Album As We Suffer From Memory And Imagination
In the past few years, we’ve seen a real rebirth of tangled, expressionist screamo. Bands like Infant Island, Portrayal Of Guilt, and Closer have taken the genre away from the MySpace/Warped Tour version that achieved commercial dominance in the mid-’00s, taking inspiration instead to the genre’s thrashing-around-on-basement-floors beginnings. The Los Angeles band Nuvolascura are a part of that, and they’ve just released a monster of an album.
Nuvolascura have been around since 2015, but they only just released their self-titled full-length debut last year. Today, they follow that album up with a new one called As We Suffer From Memory And Imagination. It’s an intense, chaotic record, full of jagged riffage and explosive dynamic shifts. Vocalist Erica Schultz has a wounded-animal urgency in her voice. It all makes for a powerful record, and you can stream it below.
