Inspiration can come from anywhere and everywhere. This is evident in Dig Nitty’s upcoming album, Reverse of Mastery, which is peppered with motifs of birds and childhood street names that come from Erin McGrath’s experiences from her youth and time working as a national park ranger.
On the LP’s first single, “Lomita,” the band’s sound oscillates back and forth between easy-going surf rock and lo-fi tinged punk, or what McGrath refers to as “hi-fi.” This elevated sound could easily be categorized as Pixies inspired noise rock, before it frequently reverts back to familiar jangly guitars. All of which is accompanied by McGrath’s vocals that have an attitude and inflection similar to that of Snail Mail’s Lindsey Jordan.
This track’s eccentric structure reveals itself even after repeated listens starting off mid-stride followed by verses broken up by peaking noise fused arrangements.
“Lomita” can be streamed below as you wait for Reverse of Mastery set for release on July 24th via Exploding In Sound Records.
